Not only was the nippy back-liner named as the Player of the Final, as the Bokke saw off the challenge of England 24-14 in the title-decider, but he also the SA player in the Dream Team named after the two-day showpiece at the Stade Jean Bouin.

The rest of the Dream Team line up along with includes other well-deserving back-line men in England's Tom Mitchell, Canadian Justin Douglas and Pol Plan of Spain.

The forwards named were the England pair of Harry Glover and Phil Burgess plus New Zealander Scott Curry.
