Anton Bresler

During the summer Edinburgh Rugby announced the signing of powerful and athletic lock, Anton Bresler, from leading Super Rugby franchise, The Sharks, on a three-year deal to 2017.

The Namibian-born, 17st 8lb lock, stands just short of two metres tall and is a product of the KwaZulu-Natal and The Sharks academy set-up.

He has been a regular enforcer for South Africa’s leading Super Rugby franchise since his 2011 debut, making 41 appearances.

The aggressive second-row had started the opening five matches for The Sharks this season before he injured his shoulder against the Bulls in March.

He made his debut for Edinburgh against Connacht, off the bench, in Round 2 of the Guinness PRO12 at BT Murrayfield.
