Former Springbok prop forward Brian Mujati was born in Zimbabwe and first came to prominence with some impressive performances for the Lions in Super 14 and Currie Cup in 2007. In 2008 he made a move down to Cape Town, performed impressively for the Stormers, caught the eye of the national selectors and quickly racked up 12 test caps. However his tour to Europe at the end of 2008 ended with a test he’d rather forget against Wales.
After Super 14 in 2009, Mujati decided he needed a fresh challenge and he signed a 2 year contract to play for Northampton Saints.
By the end of the 2 year contract, he was regarded as one of the leading tight head props in Europe. In his first season, he gradually improved and grew stronger with some outstanding performances. However in 2010/2011 season, Mujati along with England hooker, Dylan Hartley and Tongan loosehead prop, Soane Tonga’huia formed a Saints front row that regularly demolished opposing scrums. Northampton Saints were runners up in Heineken Cup and Mujati was shortlisted for Aviva Premiership Player of the Season.
Off the field, Mujati has started his own brewing business out of his garage in Northampton. Life seems to be working out for him and his family in Northampton and he decided to sign a new 3 year contract with the Saints.Date of Birth: 28/09/84
