Riekert Hattingh Joins Seattle

Press Release

The Seawolves and Head Coach Tony Healy are proud to announce the signing of former Bulls Rugby player Riekert Hattingh. Hattingh will play the 8-man position with the Seawolves. "I look forward to playing my rugby in Seattle and joining the Seawolves for the inaugural season of the MLR," said Hattingh. "I've only heard good stuff about Seattle and the rugby community."

Standing at 6-feet 5-inches and 225 lbs, the 23-year old has the potential to develop into one of the most dominant players on the pitch. "Reikert is a welcome addition to our Seawolves team. He possesses a strong all-around game. While he is extremely skillful in the lineout and in open play, Reikert has the power to be capable of producing the hard yards when necessary and allowing his teammates to play off of him," said Healy.

Hattingh worked his way up through the ranks with Blue Bulls Rugby, located in Pretoria, South Africa. His career with the Blue Bulls began at the developmental U16 level, followed by participation on the U19 and U21 teams. His playing experience with the Blue Bulls culminated with participation in the 2016 Currie Cup on the Blue Bulls Super Rugby Group.
We are proud to welcome Riekert Hattingh to the Seawolves family.
