Tiaan Erasmus comes from the land of rugby, South Africa. His father used to play, so it was only natural that he also found himself passionate about the sport. He was named team captain for his college team, going on to play for many of South Africa’s professional teams. Erasmus eventually made it to the US in 2019 to play for the Austin Elite, the Austin Gilgronis in 2020, and the Houston Sabercats in 2021. Now, with Rugby ATL, he continues his career. Erasmus also boxed until he was 20, choosing rugby in the end.
