No retirement plans for Habana




Ahead of his 100th Test, Springbok wing Bryan Habana says it’s been a massive honour to represent his country over an extended period.

Habana will become the fourth Springbok and 33rd player overall to play in 100 Tests when South Africa take on Australia in the third round of the Rugby Championship in Perth on Saturday.

The 31-year-old, who made his international debut against England at Twickenham on 20 November 2004, holds the record for the most Test tries in a Springbok jersey. His 56 Test tries places him fourth on the list of all-time Test try-scorers.

The three-time South African Rugby Player of the Year (2004, 2007 and 2012), who was also named the IRB Rugby Player of the Year in 2007, will lead the Springboks out on Saturday as he follows Percy Montgomery, John Smit and Victor Matfield in amassing 100 Tests.
