Bryan Habana is a former South African rugby union player. Playing as a wing, Habana was one of the stars of the 2007 Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok squad, scoring eight tries in the competition. This meant he equalled the record for most tries scored in a single World Cup, set by the late Jonah Lomu in 1999. Later that year, Habana was named the 2007 IRB Player of the Year.
At the 2015 Rugby World Cup, he equalled another of Lomu’s records, scoring a total of 15 tries across multiple World Cup tournaments. He is currently in second place for the number of all-time rugby test match tries scored, with a tally of 67.
Since retiring in 2018, Bryan has been fulfilling various ambassadorial and punditry roles as well as doing talks around the world.
His philanthropic drive and desire to continue giving back is burning as bright as ever and he is looking to use the Bryan Habana Foundation in several different ways to do this.
