RIP Gertjie Brynard (1938-2018)
December 07, 2018
Mr Mark Alexander, president of SA Rugby, paid tribute to former Springbok wing Gertjie Brynard, who passed away on 1 December 2018 at the age of 80.

Brynard was a medical doctor and played seven Tests for the Boks between 1965 and 1968.

"He was very famous for a magnificent try against the All Blacks at Lancaster Park in 1965, but will also be remembered as a wing who was small in stature, but with a massive heart," said Mr Alexander.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Rhoda, his children and other family members, as well as his friends, in this time of mourning."

He made his Test debut on 19 June 1965 against Australia in Sydney, when he was 26, and played the last of his seven Tests three years later, on 27 July 1968 against the British & Irish Lions in Johannesburg.

Brynard, who was born on 21 October 1938 in Calvinia, also played 14 tour matches for the Boks for a total of 21 appearances in the Green and Gold.
