Cape Town - It takes a lot to be noticed on the international rugby stage when you play for a minnow side. 

But Namibia's courageous captain Jacques Burger did just that. 

Known for his intense physicality and complete disregard for his own body, Burger made the last of his 36 Test appearances when he left the field after nine minutes against Georgia on Wednesday night. 

The final diagnosis was a concussion, and he has been ruled out of Namibia's final Pool C clash against Argentina on Sunday. 

Burger took to Twitter on Thursday to let the rugby world know that he was in good spirits.
