We are proud to have former International Player of the Year, South African wing sensation and two time European Champions Cup winner, Bryan Habana as the 2019 Rugby Festival Ambassador.
Bryan was part of the South Africa team that won the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and was one of the stars of the tournament, his eight tries equalling the single-tournament record set by Jonah Lomu in 1999. He was subsequently named the 2007 IRB Player of the Year. During the 2015 Rugby World Cup he equalled Lomu’s career record of 15 tries in World Cups. He is in second place among all time test try scorers, with a total of 67 tries behind only Daisuke Ohata.
