Rossouw has a big physical presence and almost always makes an impact when the game is tight and dominated by forwards.

He is also very strong in the tackle, and an effective line-out option.

Rossouw is a typical utility forward: he played number eight in the World Cup final (famously remembered for his try-saving tackle on Mark Cueto), was on the flank when opening the scoring in South Africa's demolition job of England last year but, interestingly enough, is a specialist lock!
