Kieran Goss is a South African rugby union player, currently playing with English RFU Championship team Cornish Pirates.[1] His position is fly-half or full-back.

Career[edit]

He started off playing for the Western Province U18s at the SA Academy Week, which earned him a call-up to the South Africa Academy team for the 2009 Craven Week tournament.

In 2010, he moved to the Sharks, where he got converted to a wing. In that season, he made 10 appearances for the Sharks' U19 team, scoring 4 tries. He was included in the Sharks XV 2011 Vodacom Cup squad, but failed to make an appearance. In the 2011 Under-21 Provincial Championship competition, he made 6 appearances, scoring 5 tries.

In 2012, he joined the Eastern Province Kings, where he was included in their Vodacom Cup squad. He made his first class debut for them against Argentine team Pampas XV,[2] making six appearances in total in that competition and scoring one try. For the rest of the season, he reverted to the Under–21 team which won the 2012 Under-21 Provincial Championship.

He wasn't included in the squad in 2013 and signed a deal to join Cornish Pirates for 2013–14.[3]
