Fans of Burger had nothing but praise for him in the comments!
- Rumours are that he used to have a notebook and pencil in his pocket so he could add the names to the list that he’d – Burgered.
- There’s getting smashed, then there’s getting Burgered.A lot of these tackles don’t look “dramatic” but players are going from full tilt to a dead stop on impact, that is some force in the tackle.
- Burger was immenseStraight from the Mother Land – Namibia, he is at true professional and has immensely given back to the development of both country and game
- After seeing Synckler bodily drag one of the Irish props backwards in the last international, the fact that Burger was only stopped by him and not flattened is actually still pretty impressive
Jacques Burger is one of the most celebrated Namibian internationals, having won 37 Test caps and playing in the 2007, 2011 and 2015 World Cups. However, his story is very much that of the underdog. For much of his career, Burger had to fight to prove himself. Legal tackles legal tackles! This is what we love!
