David Horwitz was one of ten Waratahs players who made his debut for NSW in 2016. Bursting on to the Super Rugby stage, he scored his very first try in his opening game in round one against the Queensland Reds, becoming the first of six Tahs to score their inaugural try in their debut season.
Horwitz went on to play in 13 out of the NSW Waratahs’ 15 games in the 2016 season slotting in as a dependable option at inside centre.
Following the Super Rugby season, Horwitz played an integral part of Buildcorp NRC 2016 Grand Finalists the NSW Country Eagles.
Horwitz has spent the last few years as the starting flyhalf for Randwick in the Shute Shield. He was first invited to train with the NSW Waratahs aged just 18 years and in 2017 will enter his fourth full year with the team.
He was selected in the 2014 Australian U20s team, adding to an already impressive resume which includes representative honours as a former NSW Barbarian (2013), Australian Schoolboy (2011/12) and NSW Colts.
A former Moriah College student, David made the switch to Scots College to develop his sporting talents and quickly proved himself equally adept in rugby at both flyhalf and inside centre.
David has strong all-round game play and possesses great ball skills. He has demonstrated a strong ability to control the play, create stability and organisation on the field.
Born in Sydney to South African parents, Horwitz is currently studying a Commerce degree at Sydney University.
