Werner Willem Greeff has played in all the past eight Springbok tests and recently won the South African 'Try of the Year' award. He cast aside a series of injuries to establish himself with the Stormers last season and impressed new Springbok coach, Rudolf Straeuli. His status as a ulility back enabled him to thrive at fly half in the absence of Chris Rossouw.
