Legends Bryan Habana and Dan Carter Surprise KES

On Wednesday 13 March, old boy Bryan Habana (Class of 2000) surprised the King Edward learners at half time in a friendly exhibition rugby match against Queen’s High School! Bryan and the great New Zealander Dan Carter hid behind the scenes until the whistle blew at half time and the School went wild has the two heroes stepped onto the field.

Bryan and Dan were at the school to launch to announce their Ambassador roles for Mastercard and the Rugby World Cup 2019, and what better way to do it than on the field that Bryan’s career was launched.

In the half time huddle, Bryan gave the KES players a few words of wisdom while Dan shared some tips with the Queens team.


And in true KES spirit, Bryan Habana joined in with the war cries at the end of the triumphant game!


What a privileged to have these two heroes share their stories and tips ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2019 and inspiring our young lads as we head into this winter rugby season.
