Chilliboy Ralepelle :

Chiliboy Ralepelle is a South African hooker who made his Bulls and Springboks debut in the same year in 2006. He won his first international cap as a replacement in Pretoria at Loftus Versfeld but could not force his way into the World Cup squad the following year.

In 2008 he was named on the tour of the UK and Ireland and made history when he became the youngest and the first black player to captain the Springboks when they met the World XV at Walkers Stadium in Leicester.

The following year he was named in the South Africa squad to play the British & Irish Lions and he started the third Test in Johannesburg in a 28-9 defeat but the Springboks had already won the series 2-1.
