Bryan Habana Bio

Widely regarded as one of the greatest players to ever play the game, Bryan Habana is a star of South African rugby who was capped more than 100 times by his country and won almost every trophy the game has to offer. Bryan Habana was inducted into the RugbyPass Hall of Fame in 2021.

Born 12 June 1983, Bryan Habana was incredibly talented from a young age. However, a move from inside centre to the wing really transformed his career and turned him into a star. He made his debut for the Golden Lions in 2003 and made his South Africa debut a year later. In his glittering domestic career, he plied his trade in both South Africa and France, making more than 200 domestic appearances. He was also capped 124 times by his country between 2004 and 2016.

Throughout his distinguished domestic career, Bryan Habana won the Currie Cup twice, Super Rugby twice, the Heineken Champions Cup twice and the French Top 14 once. In addition to this, for South Africa, he won the Rugby World Cup in 2007, the Tri Nations (now The Rugby Championship) in 2009 and won a series against the British and Irish Lions in 2009.

On top of all this, Bryan Habana also won several individual honours throughout his career, including the IRB Player of the Year once and the SARU Player of the Year three times.

By the time he ended his international career in 2016, Bryan Habana also held the record for the highest number of tries scored at Rugby World Cups with 15 (equal with Jonah Lomu) and was the second-highest all-time test try scorer with 67.

Bryan Habana retired from all forms of rugby in 2018. Since, he’s worked in various punditry roles. He also works as an ambassador and gives talks all around the world.
