Piet Botha came to Western Province from the Transvaal in 1962 along with Tiny Naudé. They both joined Hamiltons. Botha played for Western Province that year. He then went back to the Transvaal for whom he played 93 times between 1957 and 1972. Like Naudé he was chosen for the 1965 Springbok tour to Australasia. In New Zealand he dislocated his shoulder in some horseplay at the start of the visit and was out for so long that he never regained proper fitness.
