PLAYER WRITE-UP
“Atter”, as he is known to his team mates, became South Africa’s 800th Springbok when he was called up to do duty in the 2008 Castle Rugby Championship (then still called the Tri-Nations). Strauss, who took over the vice-captaincy following a serious knee injury suffered by Bismarck du Plessis against Argentina in Cape Town, is a very strong and experienced hooker and is respected as a leader in the South African game, having captained the Toyota Cheetahs with much aplomb in recent seasons. He scored both the Springboks' tries against Scotland at Murrayfield in November 2012. Strauss re-joined the Blue Bulls after the 2014 season.
