Kurt Kendall Coleman is a South African rugby union player, currently playing with the Stormers in the Super Rugby tournament.[1]

Career[edit]

He represented the Eastern Province Kings in the 2008 Craven Week, which earned him a move to Western Province. After playing for them in the Under-19 and Under-21 Currie Cup competitions, he was included in their 2011 Vodacom Cup squad, making his debut against the Golden Lions on the opening weekend.[2]

After eight appearances in that competition, he was called up into the Stormers squad for the 2011 Super Rugby season. He made his Stormers debut on 30 April 2011 against the Sharks, coming on as a substitute in the 70th minute and scoring a penalty 4 minutes later.[3] He made a further four appearances for the Stormers, including three starts.

He failed to break into the Stormers team for the 2012 Super Rugby season, instead representing Western Province in the Vodacom Cup, where he scored 44 points in 10 games.

After a short spell on loan at the SWD Eagles, he returned to Western Province for the 2012 Currie Cup Premier Division.

He also played for Maties in the 2011 Varsity Cup.
