Biographical Information
Lucas Thwala
(At a Glance)
Date of Birth: Oct/19/1981
Gender: male
Place of Origin: South Africa

A consistently over-achieving left back or central defender, he combines a 'no guts, no glory' attitude, utter defensive reliability and no inconsequential goal-threat. Thwala is particularly dangerous striking vicious, curving free-kicks from distance.

He deservedly came first in the poll for the 2009 South African Player of the Year and he confirmed his ability to rise to a big challenge as his Orlando Pirates side as he scored in his side's 2-0 victory over a star-studded Manchester City line-up last summer. He is a graduate of the Pirates' youth programme.
