PLAYER WRITE-UP
Jean de Villiers was named Springbok captain for 2012 before the series victory over England in June, which made him South Africa’s 54th Test skipper. He is one of the most experienced Springboks ever and a natural leader, having led Western Province and the Stormers during his provincial career. De Villiers is deceptively quick, has superb handling skills and has an uncanny knack for intercept tries. Injuries saw him miss the Rugby World Cup in 2003 and all but 40 odd minutes of the tournament in 2007, but in 2011 he was one of the Boks’ backline stars in New Zealand.

Position: Centre (82) Wing (15)
Province: Western Province (since 2002) and Munster (Ireland, 2010)
Springbok number: 735
Test debut: 9 November 2002 vs France in Marseilles, aged 21
Total tests: 97
Tour matches: 0
