JP Pietersen has played his way into becoming a Test regular for the Springboks. His combination with Habana has seen the pair become the most capped wing combination in Springbok history. Four of his international tries came in the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France, shrugging off his tag of not being a genuine try-scorer. Pietersen plays his club rugby with Natal Sharks in the Currie Cup and sister club The Sharks in the Super Rugby tournament.
