Die rugbywêreld groet ’n grote met Jacques Burger se bevestiging dat hy in sy laaste wedstryd vir Saracens teen Newcastle Falcons in Allianz Park in die Engelse premierliga opdraf waarna hy sy stewels vir goed gaan ophang.
Die wedstryd is Sondag om 15:10 Namibiese tyd (regstreeks op SuperSport 7).
Die 32-jarige Namibiese flank het sy land in 41 toetse verteenwoordig en sy verskyning by drie opeenvolgende Wêreldbekers gemaak waar hy sy land met onderskeiding verteenwoordig het – die laaste twee kere as kaptein.

Saracens flanker Jacques Burger has confirmed he will retire from rugby following Sunday's Aviva Premiership game against Newcastle at Allianz Park.
Burger, 32, joined Saracens in 2009, while he captained Namibia and played in three successive World Cup campaigns, winning a total of 41 caps.
He established a reputation as one of the toughest tacklers in world rugby, and he was among the Premiership's most consistent performers during his time in England.
Legendary rugby writer Chris Hewett pens a tribute to Jacques Burger ahead of the Namibian's final ever game this Sunday.
Back in 2010, when this writer met Jacques Burger for the first time and listened to him talk – and talk, and talk – about his abiding love of the great outdoors and his plan to farm 14,000 acres of wild southern African land in his native Namibia the moment his professional sporting career came to an end, The Independent newspaper carried a long feature under the headline: “The New Toughest Guy In Rugby?” Never was a question mark more superfluous. You could be as blind as a bat and still identify Burger as the toughest of the tough, simply by listening to the percussive sound of his tackling.
1891 the touring British rugby team came to play in the first rugby currie cup. No team beat the 1891 tourists, but they reckoned that Griqualand West had played best against them – perhaps a diplomatic decision as Kimberley was then in the thrall of men such as Cecil John Rhodes and Barney Barnato.
Well done to our Namibian U20 team for beating Hong Kong by 70 points to 8!! Very proud of coach Roger Thompson and the whole team!
The Namibian U20 team's score of 70 points against Hong Kong (8) were skilfully created as follows:
Tries: Unomasa Kavita (2)
Johan de Klerk (2)
Stiaan van der Merwe
Conversions: Cliven Loubser (8)
