PLAYER WRITE-UP
Bob Skinstad was arguably one of the most skilful loose forwards ever to play for South Africa. A RWC winner in 2007 - after he returned from retirement and a career as businessman in England - Skinstad captained the Boks in 12 of his 42 Tests. Although he missed out on playing more Tests because of injuries, Skinstad was very quick and had superb hands and vision, which saw him not only score a lot of tries, but also create heaps of try-scoring opportunities for his team mates.
