Anyone who backs himself to outpace a Cheetah must possess serious raw speed!

Anyone who backs himself to outpace a Cheetah must possess serious raw speed!

And since making his try-scoring debut in 2004 against England, that pace has brought scores - 32 to be precise - with Habana's personal résumé making him one of the deadliest finishers in world rugby.

His greatest year to date was 2007 when he crossed for the winning Super 14 try, picked up the IRB World Player of the Year award and was the top finisher as South Africa lifted the Webb Ellis trophy.

The King Edward VIII schoolboy's form and pace has, however, dipped since that memorable season and he will need to find another gear when the Lions arrive in Durban on June 20.
