Wynand Olivier – don’t hate him because he’s beautiful

Wynand Olivier burst onto the Super rugby scene in 2005 amidst a storm of controversy about his hair.  Certain sections of the Blue Bulls fan base were in awe of his long flowing locks – while the more conservative sections of Loftus were deeply troubled at the prospect of a walking Pantene commercial putting on the faded blue jersey.  He quickly earned the nickname of “Prince Charming from Shrek”.

Early on in his career, his defensive woes relegated him to the category of “strictly eye candy only”, but 2006 saw an improved Olivier.  He sorted out his tackling and started to get the backs away with good distribution skills. This saw a call up to Jake White’s Bok team where he put in a solid, if unspectacular, season in the green and gold.  Since 2006 he has struggled to break back into the Bok line up amidst rumours that his modelling career is starting to impact on his time on the training field.

Olivier has had a stormy start to 2011.  Earlier in the year he was spotted in a trendy New York night club in some compromising photos with Kate Moss.  His much awaited album “Waiting for the Rain”  tanked on released, shattering his dream of doing the the trifecta of Bok, supermodel and pop star.

Rumours continue to abound that Wynand will have a starring role in the next Bond film.  Let’s hope he concentrates on his rugby first.
