Johannesburg - Legendary former Springbok and Transvaal flyhalf Gerald Bosh paid a visit to the Ellis Park rugby museum on Thursday.

The 69-year-old Bosch, who was born in Vereeniging, played nine Tests for the Springboks between 1974 and 1976, saw some of his former team-mates for the first time in nearly two decades.

Bosch has been living in Brisbane, Australia for the last 20 years and is visiting South Africa with his wife for the first time since 2001.

A function was organised for Bosch at the Ellis Park museum, where he met up with former team-mates like Gerrie Germishuys, Kevin de Klerk, Johan “Pottie” Strauss and Richard Prentis.

Bosch, who gained international recognition for his deadly boot and his 'around-the-corner' kicking style, retired from rugby in 1978 and is still the Golden Lions’ top points-scorer.

He scored 89 points in nine Tests for the Boks and the highlight of his international career was playing in the 3-1 home series victory over the All Blacks in 1976.
