Pierre Schoeman (born 7 May 1994 in Nelspruit, South Africa) is a South African rugby union player for Edinburgh in the Pro14.[1] His regular position is prop.

Career

Youth

As a scholar at Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool in Pretoria, Schoeman represented the Blue Bulls at various youth tournaments. He played for them at the Under-16 Grant Khomo Week in 2010 and at the 2011 and 2012 Under-18 Craven Week tournaments.

His performances in the Craven Week competition also led to his inclusion in the South African Schools side in 2011,[2] playing one match against France.[3] He was once again selected in the South African Schools side in 2012. He played in (and captained) the side in their matches against France[4] and Wales[5] and played off the bench in their match against England.[6]

Schoeman then represented the Blue Bulls U19 side in the 2012 and 2013 Under-19 Provincial Championships.

In 2014, he was selected in the South Africa Under-20 side for the 2014 IRB Junior World Championship in New Zealand.[7] He was the first points scorer for his side at the tournament, getting an 18th-minute try to help the side to a victory over Scotland.[8]

Bulls

Schoeman made his first class debut during the 2014 Vodacom Cup competition. He started in the Blue Bulls' 24-26 defeat to eventual champions Griquas.[8] He remained in the starting line-up for their next match in the competition against the Pumas.[9]

Edinburgh

In April 2018, it was announced that Schoeman would join Scottish Pro14 club Edinburgh prior to the 2018-19 Pro14 on a three-year contract. In December 2019, Pierre won the Outstanding Man of the Match performance with rivals Glasgow Warriors in the second leg of the prestigious 1872 Cup, this brought the score to one victory each leaving it all to play for in May 2020.[10]
