A doctor by proffesion, Rudi van Vuuren is unique in that he represented his country at the 2003 cricket World Cup in South Africa and at the rugby World Cup in Australia later that year. His five matches in cricket's version were mixed affairs - van Vuuren was hammered for a then-record 28 in one over by Darren Lehmann, but he gained some solace in taking 5 for 43 against England. A decent fly-half, he was injured for much of Namibia's rugby campaign, including their 142-0 defeat against the defending champions Australia, but he came on to make history as a late replacement against Romania.
