Braude joins the Arrows from Super Rugby’s Bulls, where the 21-year-old scrum-half helped lead the Pretorian club’s age-grade sides to under-19 and under-21 championships in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
The Canada-eligible back, who qualifies for the red and white through his Canadian father, previously represented the South African under-18 sevens team before opting for Canada as his test future. Braude’s first involvement with Canada’s national program came this past November at the 36-player national team camp in Langford, B.C., where he and 12 other Arrows players assembled at the Al Charron National Training Centre for three weeks of high-performance training.
As a student, Braude captained the prestigious Grey College 1st XV— a school that has produced more than 45 future Springboks – and twice represented Free State in the iconic Craven Week schoolboys tournament.
