Pieter is a mobile hooker who has exceptional ball skills, and he also has good core set-piece skills. His scrummaging is strong, whilst his lineout work has earned much praise, and the all-round experience he brings to the squad is highly valuable. Pieter is a consistently high performer and can be relied upon whenever he is on the park, as evidenced by the fact he has made over 140 appearances for Bath so far.
