Pierre Schoeman (born 7 May 1994 in Nelspruit, South Africa) is a South African rugby union player for Edinburgh in the Pro14.[1] His regular position is prop.



As a scholar at Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool in Pretoria, Schoeman represented the Blue Bulls at various youth tournaments. He played for them at the Under-16 Grant Khomo Week in 2010 and at the 2011 and 2012 Under-18 Craven Week tournaments.

His performances in the Craven Week competition also led to his inclusion in the South African Schools side in 2011,[2] playing one match against France.[3] He was once again selected in the South African Schools side in 2012. He played in (and captained) the side in their matches against France[4] and Wales[5] and played off the bench in their match against England.[6]

Schoeman then represented the Blue Bulls U19 side in the 2012 and 2013 Under-19 Provincial Championships.

In 2014, he was selected in the South Africa Under-20 side for the 2014 IRB Junior World Championship in New Zealand.[7] He was the first points scorer for his side at the tournament, getting an 18th-minute try to help the side to a victory over Scotland.[8]


Schoeman made his first class debut during the 2014 Vodacom Cup competition. He started in the Blue Bulls' 24–26 defeat to eventual champions Griquas.[8] He remained in the starting line-up for their next match in the competition against the Pumas.[9]


In April 2018, it was announced that Schoeman would join Scottish Pro14 club Edinburgh prior to the 2018–19 Pro14 on a three-year contract.[10]
