Ikeys wing Ntokozo Makhaza eyes a path to the Stormers

FNB UCT Ikeys winger Ntokozo Makhaza has praised the DHL Stormers’ brand of rugby, saying it excites him. 


Makhaza, who is in his third full season with the Tigers, has been vital with the boot for the Cape Town-based side. He is the club's first-choice kicker.  


For Makhaza there’s only one way, and that’s to the big leagues of the Stormers. He believes his kicking abilities will help him get there.  


"I would love to be part of that environment. The brand they are playing, and the style of play excites me, and it is something I have been following closely.  


"I see myself there one day, being part of that set-up. I love kicking so much, it's something I enjoy the most, ⁠in the season I try to have at least two kicking sessions weekly." 


Makhaza says New Zealand's full-back Damian McKenzie is the player he looks up to the most when seeking inspiration.  


"I look up to quite a few players, mostly players of similar size and weight. Damian McKenzie is one player who is excellent off the tee and in general play. I look to him a lot for inspiration.” 


According to Mackhaza, he gets motivation from all around.  


"What motivates me is my team and my goals. One of our team goals is to win the Varsity Cup so I want to play my part in giving the team the best possible chance to win this tournament … what I’d like to see is us playing to our full potential, playing how I know we are capable of playing."
