Shaun Raubenheimer (born 10 November 1983) is a former South African rugby union player, who played as a loose-forward for the SWD Eagles, Border Bulldogs and Griffons between 2008 and 2014.[1]

Career[edit]

Youth[edit]

He represented his local side SWD Eagles at youth level until 2003. He then joined the SAPS College, which led to his inclusion in the South African Police team in 2006 and the South African Forces team in 2007.

Provincial career[edit]

In 2008, he joined the Border Bulldogs, making his debut in a 33–27 victory over the Blue Bulls[2] in the 2008 Vodacom Cup. He quickly established himself as a first team regular, making fifteen appearances in the 2008 Vodacom and Currie Cup competitions.

He returned to the SWD Eagles in 2009, playing in the majority of their games in 2009 and 2010. A short spell at the Griffons followed in 2011 before he returned to the SWD Eagles once more in 2012.

Raubenheimer retired from professional rugby during the 2014 Currie Cup First Division due to other work commitments,[3] having made 101 first class appearances and scoring 30 tries during his career.
