John Smit became the 51st player to captain the Springboks in a 46-19 win over Georgia at the Rugby World Cup in Australia (24 October 2004)

Smit’s participation as a member of the 2003 World Cup squad marked his successful return from a lengthy layoff caused by a recurring shoulder injury. After playing his last international at the end of 2001, Smit was involved in the Springbok rehabilitation programme in 2003 and made his return from the bench in the Boks’ opening clash of the World Cup against Uruguay in Perth.

Having represented the Blue Bulls at Craven Week and captained SA Schools, the former Pretoria Boys’ High head boy led the South African U21 side to the Sanzar/UAR title in 1999 at loosehead
