Welcome Tyler Bocks!

Ealing Trailfinders are delighted to announce the signing of centre Tyler Bocks from the URC’s Emirates Lions ahead of the 2024/25 season.

23 years of age, Bocks made his Currie Cup Premier Division debut for the Golden Lions against Western Province in 2022.

Named in the 2023/24 Lions URC squad, he is known for his defensive stability whilst being dangerous in attack.

Bocks represented the Junior Springboks in 2021, having previously played for the South African schools team in the Under-18s International Series in 2019.

On arrival in West London, Bocks said: “I’m very excited to be joining Ealing Trailfinders and to play in England. The quality of rugby is high and it’s the perfect environment for me to keep on improving my game at a competitive level. I look forward to meeting all of you and helping the club reach continued success and win trophies”

Ealing Trailfinders Director of Rugby Ben Ward added: “Tyler is an exciting signing for the club. He is an abrasive centre who hits hard and can get us on the front foot.”
