I'm still learning and grateful for the opportunities to be playing senior rugby so soon says Fassi

Sharks’ 20-year-old utility back Aphelele Fassi admits it has been a great year for him and that it has all been about learning. Fassi was in school last year at Dale College in the Eastern Cape but has quickly become an overnight sensation in Durban after making his senior appearances for the Sharks in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge and Currie Cup competitions. Fassi says he continues to learn from role models like Springbok and Sharks wing Sbu Nkosi and that he still has more to learn in his fledgling career.
