South Africa v World XV

The Springbok wing once raced a cheetah and although he came off second-best in that particular sprint, plenty of opposing players have been left eating Habana’s dust over the years.

Habana scored on his South Africa debut against England in 2004 and he hasn’t stopped since. The 32-year-old was a key member of the Springbok team who lifted the Webb Ellis Cup in 2007, beating England 15-6 in the final. The same year, he was named World Player of the Year.

Habana once again crossed the whitewash in the second Test against the Lions in 2009, helping the Boks to a nervy 28-25 victory and a series triumph.

He has also starred for Toulon since 2013 as they have dominated the club game in the northern hemisphere.
