Surely Springboks centre Jessie Kriel has no need to be this ripped
There's ripped and then there is ripped. Then there is needlessly ripped.
Jesse Kriel is all three.
The Springboks centre is in Dublin to take on Ireland with the touring Springboks side and he looks to be in awesome shape.
The 23-year-old has 25 Test caps with the Boks and will be hoping to help them climb back to respectability after their shellacking at the hands of New Zealand earlier this year. Since that game, South Africa have beaten Argentina twice, had two draws with Australia and pushed the All Blacks to the brink in their final outing of The Rugby Championship.
Kriel, named at outside centre against Ireland, shared this image [below] ahead of the 2017 Super Rugby season and it certainly caught our attention. The man's arms are so pumped that he looks like some sort of tragi-comic action man.
Our course, Kriel's serious defined body did not come down in the last rain shower.
He has been honing his physique for the last number of years and has it down to a fine art at this stage.
"Put in what you get out"
He could almost give our Niyi Adeolokun a run for his money.
Watch out Bundee Aki and Robbie Henshaw.
