Bio

Schalk Burger made his debut for the Springboks against Georgia at Sydney in the 2003 World Cup at the age of 20. Ever since, the blonde-haired back row has been a focal part of South Africa’s pack, including the one which toppled England in the Webb Ellis final at the Stade de France in 2007. Burger was infamously banned for gouging in the first Test against the British & Irish Lions in 2009. Burger represents the Western Province and Super Rugby's The Stormers on the domestic front. He was named as the IRB World Player of the Year in 2004.
