Evidence why Frik du Preez is the greatest player ever

FLASHBACK: Frik du Preez is regarded by many South Africans as the greatest player ever.


And there is one match in particular that provides evidence for this claim.

In the 1969 Currie Cup Final between Northern Transvaal (now Blue Bulls) and Western Province, Oom Frik put in a masterful performance that is still talked about today.

The legendary lock managed to score in every manner the game makes available when he kicked a penalty and a drop goal, before scoring a try and converting it!

Northern Transvaal won the match 28-13.
