Willem Alberts is a huge specimen, capable of covering across the back row. His huge hits, both in defence and attack have made him a real fans' favourite. Despite going into the RWC with only four caps to his name since his 2010 debut against Wales, Alberts has crossed for three tries. He will be an important impact player for the Boks at the 2011 tournament.
