Ambaka confirmed a Stormers player

01 August 2014, 12:58

Johannesburg - Powerhouse Kenyan wing William Ambaka Ndayara will join Western Province ahead of the Currie Cup competition.

Ndayara, who weighs a hefty 100kg and stands 1,95m tall, first came to prominence after a string of outstanding performances for Kenya at international Sevens level, having made his debut for his country in 2011.

The powerful runner has spent the past European season at French club Lyon Olympique Universitaire.

"We first heard about Willy through Jerome Paarwater, who has been working with the Kenyan 15-a-side team and very nearly helped them qualify for the 2015 Rugby World Cup," Gert Smal, Western Province's director of rugby, told www.wprugby.com.

"He is a strong runner with plenty of pace and tremendous aerial skills... he's an exciting addition to our playing ranks.

"But his on-field abilities aside, Willy is a true professional who is looking forward to joining Western Province," Smal said.

The Kenyan speedster can play at centre or wing and will add significant depth to the WP backline during the Currie Cup competition, which gets underway next weekend.

Ndayara, 24, was one of three nominees for the prestigious IRB Sevens Player of the Year award in 2013, losing out eventually to New Zealand's Tim Mikkelson.
