Cape Town - Former Springbok wing Breyton Paulse presented John Smit's team with their match jerseys for the Test against France at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday.

Paulse, who scored 26 tries in his 64 Tests from 1999 until 2007, said it was a great honour to present the jerseys.

“Nothing I can say will motivate you,” he said. “There are enough people doing that. But I want to want to leave you with a question.

“Are you going to be a Springbok who leaves a legacy or just an ordinary Springbok?

“There are guys here like John, Victor, Bryan and Schalk who are legends and who people will talk about forever. Each of you must strive for that.

“Enjoy the moments and enjoy each other and being part of the Springbok family.

“Go out and do what you do best. Make South Africa proud and make the Springbok jersey proud.

“Good luck,” Paulse said.

    well said Breyton - fantastic words from a great servant of SA rugby and a man who clearly enjoyed each game - loved the buckflips and the smile when he scored...a joy to watch Go Bokke

    I agree, this test will be dynamite, pity about 1 or 2 selections though, seems like we are definately not picking on merit, especially at reserve hooker, that guy is permanently injured and is a pathetic hooker, is only his provinces 4th choice, plays very infrequently. I hope John Smit never gets injured, but if he does and Chilliboy has to play more than 3 or 4 token minutes, it will be a wake up call to selectors to play a reserve hooker like Maka/Maku instead.
