Celebrating our latest Bok centurions

Bryan Habana and Jean de Villiers are on the cover of the new issue of SA Rugby magazine, on sale now.

Habana become the fourth Springbok to play 100 Tests when he started against the Wallabies in Perth, with De Villiers joining that club a week later in Wellington.

In his column, Mark Keohane says both players will leave great legacies. 

'The two deserve the standing ovation. They deserve the accolades. They deserve all the applause,' he writes. 'No player flukes 100 Tests, and Habana and De Villiers have never fluked anything in their careers.

'They are class acts, as people and as rugby players.'

SA Rugby magazine also lists all of their Tests and provides the numbers that matter from their glittering careers.
