Habana fires back at Twitter troll

Former Springbok wing Bryan Habana has silenced a social-media user who described him as ‘overrated’ by crafting the perfect response.

Habana celebrated his 38th birthday thi past Saturday. As part of the celebrations, World Rugby put up a post on its Twitter page asking users to describe the 2007 World Cup winner in a single word.

However, when one user described Habana as ‘overrated’, the Bok centurion hit back in a reply, listing all of his achievements, including a Tri-Nations and Lions Series win and two Super Rugby and Currie Cup titles.

This comes after Habana also came out in defence of former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers on social media, when the current EP Elephants coach’s endearing post was met with cynicism by one Twitter user.

This poll has ended (since 1 month).
