PLAYER WRITE-UP
Schalk Burger, who became Springbok captain #55 in 2015, has been a stalwart of Springbok rugby since making his Test debut at the Rugby World Cup in 2003. He overcame serious injury and illness in 2012 and 2013 to fight his way back into Bok contention, showing that he’s lost none of the skills that made him one of the most feared loose forwards on the planet during a strong Vodacom Super Rugby campaign for the DHL Stormers. Schalk, a former IRB World Player of the Year (2004), is a versatile loose forward who can play any position in the back row.
