Originally from Cape Town, Springbok Francois Louw joined Bath Rugby in 2011. The hard-hitting flanker was an integral component of the Stormers pack in Super Rugby, and has represented Western Province over 60 times.

Highly regarded for his defensive skills, Louw is an influential presence in the back row who can not only create havoc at the breakdown, but is also skillful and quick in attack.

The 6ft 4in, 17st 5lb Louw has made over 30 appearances for South Africa since his debut against Wales in 2010, and has scored five tries in that short time.
