Hmm, Roux is very much an all-rounder type of player. I can't say he'd comfortably mix it up with the likes of say Bakkies Botha, Brad Thorn, O'Conell etc but he certainly isn't a lightweight. I see him as more of an athletic type though like say, Lawes from England. He gets round the park and gets through a lot of work in both attack and defense. He'll probably look to offload or keep the ball alive rather than smash someone. He does have amazing ball skills for a lock.
He's been immense in the 2nd tier competition for WP- a star player along with our young loose forwards- and when he came on for the Stormers against the Bulls his pass put Kolisi away for the match winning try.
