After being named IRB Player of the Year in 2004, Burger carried his
impressive form into 2005, playing a number of Tests for the Springboks.
He continued to put his body on the line, but became more streetwise and conceded far fewer penalties at the breakdown.
Burger scored a try on his Test debut as a substitute against Georgia at the 2003 World Cup and made another two appearances off the bench later in the tournament.

In 2004, he became a regular starter for the Springboks, with his
powerful surges on attack and big hits on defence making him the
world’s best flanker that year.

Schalk Burger has been one of the star performers in South African rugby over the past year, excelling in the Vodacom Rugby Super 12 in the early season and then continuing his sparkling form during the Test season and the Boks Vodacom Tri-Nations win and then the Absa Currie Cup.

Also nominated for the Absa SA Rugby Player of the Year Award 2004, as well as the Sasol Most Promising Player and Vodacom Rugby Super 12 Player of the Tournament, he was crowned the top award for the Absa SA Rugby Player of the Year in 2004.

Schalk has grown in stature since his spectacular debut season for Investec Western Province in the 2003 ABSA Currie Cup tournament. It only took a few matches for his talent to be recognised and he was included in the Springbok Rugby World Cup squad.

He captained the SA Under-21 squad at the 2003 IRB Under-21 World Cup and was part of the title winning squad in 2002.
