Bryan Gary Habana


Ironically this rugby star was named after Manchester football greats Bryan Robson and Gary Bailey. Bryan Gary Habana abandoned his love for football after he witnessed the Springboks win the 1995 rugby World Cup. Since then his love for the oval ball has grown to be complemented with some fine moments in both national team colours and for his beloved club, the Blue Bulls. The Boks' wing scored eight tries in 2007 to equal the record set by All Blacks' Jonah Lomu in 1999 for most tries in one World Cup. He was subsequently named the International Rugby Board's 2007 player of the year. Habana is known for his great speed and is arguably the best finisher in the world. � Phathisani Moyo
