Koster writes for SuperSport.com



We at SuperSport.com are delighted to announce that we have added Stormers eighthman Nick Koster to our pool of top columnists. Nick will keep us updated weekly as he plies his trade in the world's toughest rugby tournament.

Nick has been part of the Western Province rugby system since 2007, when the union contracted him despite being a schoolboy. The hugely talented Koster was used as a winger during his early days in professional rugby player but it seems sanity has prevailed and, despite his utility value, he has settled on playing as a loose forward for the Cape-based franchise.

Nick made his Currie Cup debut for Western Province at the age of 19 against Boland in 2008 and his performances that year earned him a spot on the Barbarians bench for the match against Australia at Wembley that year. His Super Rugby debut for the Stormers came in 2009 against the Lions, where he played on the wing, but unfortunately a knee injury ended his participation in any forms of rugby that year.

The next two years were tough for Nick as a series of niggling injuries hampered his progress, but his personal strength has seen him rise above adversity and put on some strong performances for his team in this year’s Vodacom Super Rugby competition.

His rugby background stems from the famous Diocesan College, or Bishops College, and this well-rounded grooming will come to the fore in Nick's weekly columns as he gives our readers some quality insights into the game at the highest level.

We are certainly looking forward to his contributions, and we're sure you are too. Here is the link to Nick's first column:
