About Schalk Brits

Schalk Brits is a PRG Old Boy who matriculated in 1999. Brits’s professional rugby career spanned over 20 years where he played for various teams in South Africa (Stormers, Bulls, Lions) as well as Saracens in the United Kingdom. Internationally he made his debut for the Springboks in 2008 and he retired at the end of 2019 as one of the players and captains of the World Cup-winning team.

Brits’s ability to lift the spirit amongst his fellow team mates and set an example with his professionalism and superb work rate is evident in the words of Rassie Erasmus, South Africa’s Director of Rugby: “Schalk was an invaluable member of the 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning team. He came in with one goal in mind and that was to make the Springboks successful, putting aside his own ambitions and selflessly working for the greater good of the team, as a player and a mentor to younger squad members.”

Brits is the epitome of PRG’s values of hard work, discipline, honesty and humility.
