EP Kings strongman Kevin Buys began his career with the Blue Bulls before making the move to France to play Top 14 rugby with Brive.

After two successful seasons with the French club, the powerful tighthead prop returned to South Africa to sign with the Lions.

A physical player with an impressive work rate, Buys enjoyed a strong 2009 Currie Cup season and was a stand out performer for the Lions in their 2010 Super 14 campaign.

In 2012, Buys signed with the EP Kings who made their Super Rugby debut in 2013.

At the conclusion of the 2013 Super Rugby season Kevin signed with French Top 14 side CA Brive.
