Injury: 23 April 1983, aged 23, playing in a club fixture for Excelsior Rugby Club in Middleburg. He lives in Steynsburg in the Eastern Cape.

“After my injury, my team mates lifted me up, put me on a roof sheet to carry me off the field. There was no ambulance around which meant it took me a long time to get to hospital. Years on, I am now painting and making furniture for a living.”
