The former Springbok has high praise for the Blitzboks, saying they've taken the standard of play "to another level" over the last decade or so.
A fantastic year and a fantastic opportunity with the Olympics at the end of this season... Competition for places is only going to bring the best out of the players.Bryan Habana, Former Springbok
Habana says their performance and also the brotherhood the team has formed is inspirational.
We're all extremely proud... They're a team of guys who actually come together and not only put their hands up, they punch so far above their weight in terms of side comparison to other teams on the circuit.Bryan Habana, Former Springbok
