Born in Cape Town in 1980, this quick-witted centre has made the number thirteen jersey his own for both Sharks and South Africa over the past few seasons.

The 28-year-old actually made his Springbok debut back in 2001 but a year later found himself out in the international wilderness for six terms before returning.

Jacobs possesses real pace and strength with his low centre of gravity making him extremely difficult to ground for defenders...all of which makes his battle with Brian O'Driscoll very intriguing.
