About Red Cap Rugby


Hi I’m Jacques Botes, founder of RedCapRugby.com, and recently retired after close to 13 years as a professional rugby player. As the most capped Currie Cup player in South Africa and having played 244 games for the Sharks I’ve had some amazing experiences, some great high’s and disappointing lows for which I’m all truly grateful for…. well at least now I am.

If you are wanting to
• Know what it takes to reach your dream,
• Some tricks of the trade,
• Become the best rugby player you can be, or
• Just learn and apply lessons from this wonderful game that will not only help you succeed on the rugby field but also off, your at the right place.

RedCap Rugby is here to help you, guide you and advise you too become the best you can be.

My goal is to help you reach your full potential, by joining you on your journey called life. I share valuable content, personal lessons learnt and experiences gained from my time as a professional Rugby Player.

I’m very happily married and have 3 beautiful children. We currently live in Durban South Africa.
