Bryan Habana is one of the greatest rugby players of all time.
Born in 1983 in Johannesburg, he carved out a successful career as a professional rugby union player, initially playing as an outside centre but later shifted to the wing.
Throughout his career, Bryan played for several clubs, including the French rugby club Toulon, the Blue Bulls, Stormers, and Golden Lions.
It was his contribution to the South Africa national team, known as the Springboks, that truly cemented his status as a rugby legend. His performances on the international stage were often game-changing, contributing significantly to the success of the team.
One of the highlights of his career was the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
He was one of the stars of the winning Springbok squad, scoring eight tries in the competition. This feat equalled the record for most tries scored in a single World Cup, set by the late Jonah Lomu in 1999.
Even after retirement, Bryan continues to contribute to the sport. He has been involved in breaking two world records at his old school, King Edward VII School (KES):
- most rugby passes by a team in one minute: 96, and
- most rugby passes by a team in three minutes: 283.
