Boetie Britz (born 28 July 1987) is a South African rugby union player, who can play as a loose-forward or a hooker.[1]

After representing the SWD Eagles at the Craven Week and making the South African schools team in 2005, as well as the SA Under-19 team in the 2006 World Championships, he then represented Western Province at Under 19, Under 21 and Vodacom Cup level between 2007 and 2009, where his career was hampered by a series of injuries. In 2009 and 2010, he played for Maties in the FNB Varsity Cup, helping them to two championships.

He joined the Eastern Province Kings for the 2011 season. He was named in the Kings wider training squad for the 2013 Super Rugby season, but was subsequently released to the Vodacom Cup squad.[2]
