Jean de Villiers


Jean de Villiers was born in Paarl on the 24th of February 1981. He is a former South African rugby union player. Jean de Villiers played most of his career as an inside centre although he started his career at wing. De Villiers previously played for Western Province in the Currie Cup, the Stormers in Super Rugby, Leicester Tigers in Premiership Rugby and internationally for South Africa, for whom he was named captain in June 2012.

Jean de Villiers was named Springbok captain for 2012 before the series victory over England in June, which made him South Africa’s 54th Test skipper. Having led Western Province and the Stormers during his provincial career, Jean de Villiers is one of the most experienced Springboks ever and a natural leader. De Villiers has superb handling skills, an uncanny knack for intercepting tries and is deceptively quick. Due to injuries he missed the Rugby World Cup in 2003 and all but 40 odd minutes of the tournament in 2007, but in 2011 he was one of the Boks’ backline stars in New Zealand. In 2014 he became the fifth South African to reach 100 Test caps for the Springboks.
