Greatest Rugby Memory:
“Playing Sevens in Malaysia for Stellenbosch Under 19”
“Ever since i started playing rugby at high school I always wanted to play at a higher level, like Stormers and Springboks. I have been in few trials and played in Legends Cup tournament for Juniors at school.”
Mikey has had an incredible journey with Hammies in the past few seasons and has grown immensely as a player. He is a senior and vital part of the 3rd XV and slips seamlessly into the 2nds when needed.
Mike Joni is hard working flanker that enjoys the physical side of the game. A good defender at close quarters and strong ball carrier. Mike has a high work rate at ruck time and is always prepared to do the dirty work for which ever team he is selected. Mike is a regular stand out forward and continues to grow as a player at Hammies with consistent performances each week. – Barry Herbert 3rd Team Manager
