Ex-Kings player makes NFL roster
- 05 Dec 2013
Daniel Adongo's successful transition to American football has seen him make the roster for the Indianapolis Colts.
The Kenyan-born forward played in the 2012 Vodacom Cup with the Blue Bulls before heading to New Zealand and playing with Counties Manukau in the New Zealand Cup. He then joined the Kings and played in five Super Rugby matches in 2013.
He became well-known for his massive 112kg frame, athletic physique and attributes, and had a number of great performances with Counties, helping them to their championship win. Adongo's build and speed made him a perfect fit for an outside linebacker.
‘I’m still learning and absorbing and just looking forward to implementing the skills out there,’ said Adongo.
Adongo could take to the field on Sunday, but the match-day squad has yet to be finalised.
‘Whatever they ask me to do, I’m going to do it to the best of my abilities and play for the team,’ he said.
