Jean de Villiers

Rugby player

The South African Rugby Annual 2009 writes: "Given that he probably scores one every three games, everyone should have their favourite Jean de Villiers intercept try by now�. The Stormers captain and Springbok outside centre's forays for both club and country saw Jean de Villiers named the 2008 Absa Player of the Year. His ability to read the game placed him as a favourite for the title ahead of other exceptional talents such as Beast Mtawarira, Bismarck du Plessis, Adrian Jacobs and Ryan Kankowski. The fact that he was also voted the Players' Player of the Year confirms that the decision was unanimous in the rugby fraternity. � Phathisani Moyo
