Os du Randt is on the cover of the August issue as the two-time World Cup winner has been selected by SA Rugby magazine among the Top 30 Springboks since 1995.
“Du Randt’s career typified every character trait that defines the stature of the greatest names to have played the game,” states the latest edition of our magazine – on sale this Friday – as the writers undertook the mammoth task of selecting the best players to have worn the green and gold since 1995.
Bok captains past and present – John Smit, Francois Pienaar and Siya Kolisi – join Du Randt on the cover, as does the ever-underappreciated Frans Malherbe, but who else has made the cut?
Willie le Roux has not been included in the top 30, but the veteran playmaker is featured as a player with a big role to play for the world champions as they prepare to defend their World Cup title next year.
In keeping with the theme of flashy fullbacks, Devon Williams reveals the story behind his funky hairstyles and which Pumas teammate would make the worst Uber driver. We also take a look back at how Werner Greeff helped the Springboks avoid a Tri-Nations whitewash against the Wallabies in 2002.
Williams helped the Pumas win the Currie Cup this year, but what should be done about the tournament’s future? Two SA Rugby magazine team members go head to head on the heavily debated topic.
