Just Joost

The tributes for Joost van der Westhuizen have, quite rightly, poured in from across the rugby world.

He was a great player and Springbok.

I enjoyed watching him play, although only when he wasn’t against England or the Lions – then I wanted him to have an off day (it didn’t happen that often!)

I have found a couple of good clips of Joost in his peak –

Of all the tributes I have read I thought this one from Matt Dawson, who remembers the man and the friend was worth sharing –
