Come and join us for an evening with Nick Mallett, UCT alumnus, distinguished former Springbok rugby player and coach, and world renowned master of the game.
Born in England, and raised in both Zimbabwe and South Africa, Nick has enjoyed an outstanding international rugby career, as both player and coach. After being selected as a Western Province player whilst studying, he graduated from UCT in 1977 with a BA in English and History, going on to complete his education at Oxford University where he won blues for both rugby and cricket. During the 1980s, Nick represented South Africa before heading to France where he played and began his coaching career. Between 1997 and 2000, Nick was one of the most successful coaches of the Springboks, with a win percentage of 71% and including a world record equalling run of 17 consecutive wins.
Nick went on to coach Stade Français and Italy, who made great strides as a national team during his tenure. He is now the analytical voice of South African rugby through his broadcasting work.
