12 November 2007

South Africa's elite and most promising rugby players were honoured at a glittering awards ceremony at the Sandton Convention Centre on 7th November 2007. The SA Rugby Player Awards Banquet pays tribute to rugby players and referees who have made significant contributions to the development of the game.

The Sasol South African U/19 player of the year award went to SA U/19 open-side flanker Johan van Deventer, one of the outstanding players at the 2007 U/19 IRB World Cup, who was also nominated for the prestigious IRB U/19 player of the year award
 
Sharks speedster Mzwandile Stick capped a memorable 2006/07 IRB World Sevens Series campaign by being named Sasol Springbok Sevens Player of the year. Aside from his improved defense, searing pace and ball-playing abilities, Stick's improved work rate and attitude played a huge role in him receiving this award.
 
The Sasol most promising player of the year award went to sensational Springbok and Sharks utility back Francois Steyn. At age 19 Francois was one of the youngest players ever to be selected to represent his country as a Springbok . His strength, agility, and devastating boot has made Francois one of the most exciting young prospects in world rugby.
