After his successful rugby career, former Springbok and Sharks star Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira continues to make even bigger moves in the business world.

Former Sharks strongman and 2019 Rugby World Cup-winner Mtawarira is set to make another addition to his business portfolio by launching his wine label soon.

Mtawarira, 36, has become a full-time businessman after calling time on his illustrious career as a prop in 2019 on the back of a successful World Cup for SA.

In his short stint as a fully-fledged businessman, Mtawarira has scored a few ambassadorship roles, a seat on the Sharks board and now he is expanding his portfolio into wine production.

“We are actually planning the launch now, so you kind of jumped the gun there and obviously you caught wind of it,” Mtawarira told TimesLIVE.

“But ja I’m actually quite a big secret wine lover. I enjoy it a lot and now I’ve done a partnership with some prominent wine estates in the Cape, and we are launching the Beast Wine Collection, which is going to be packed with some amazing wine.

“I’m looking forward to unpacking that a bit more when it gets into the market.” Businesses Mtawarira has ventured into since his playing days include running a security company and getting his foundation up and running.

“Life after rugby for me has been quite hectic, but I’m certainly enjoying it,” Mtawarira said.
“I’ve hit the ground sprinting between many things, and I think when I look back on my career, I get goosebumps and I’m very proud that I could achieve so much and play the number of games that I played representing the Springboks and the Sharks.

“I was very blessed to be in the park for back-to-back seasons without many injuries. I look back with a big smile,” he said.

“I had a plan that I kind of laid down before I retired from rugby, and I think that’s what made a big difference because I knew exactly what I was going to do. Some of the ventures I’m currently in include running a security company called Umlindi Security which is part of Fidelity Group.”

In his quest to be as successful in business as he was on the playing field the Sharks’ longest-serving player has gone back to school and is doing an MBA. 

Tendai Mtawarira, born in 1985 is a Zimbabwean-South African professional rugby union player who plays for Old Glory DC in Major League Rugby and previously for the South Africa national team and the Sharks in Super Rugby. 

He was born in Zimbabwe and qualified for South Africa on residency grounds, before later acquiring South African citizenship. Mtawarira, a prop, is known by the nickname The Beast.

Mtawarira made his debut for South Africa against Wales on 14 June 2008. With 117 caps, he is the most capped prop in South African history and the third most capped Springbok of all time behind Victor Matfield and Bryan Habana.

With his 117 caps, Mtawarira is the 17th most capped international forward of all time and the 5th most capped prop of all time. He is also a 2019 Rugby World Cup Winner. - TimesLive
