Schalk’s father, also Schalk, played for the Springboks six times in the 1980s and it was clear from an early age that sport would play a significant role in Schalk Junior’s life. He held a professional cricket contract before turning his attention to rugby and, in his first full season as an international (2004) was named the IRB’s World Player of the Year. In 2015, after being part of the Springboks’ World Cup squad, he received the Laureus Comeback of the Year award, having recovered from a life-threatening illness to play at international level again.
