WINDHOEK, Dec. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Windhoek Gymnasium School in Namibia on Monday announced that it has appointed former Springbok rugby player Jan Hendrik de Beer, better known as Jannie de Beer, as the director of rugby.

De Beer, who is currently in South Africa, will relocate to Namibia as he is going to commence his duties in January 2020 to overlook all the rugby-related matters at the Windhoek private school.

The 48-year-old De Beer is a South African former rugby union player. He played fly-half for the South African national team, the Springboks. In all he represented the Springboks in 13 tests, scoring 183 points.

He was principally known as a kicking fly-half. De Beer is most famous for his world record five drop goals in a single test match, set in the 1999 Rugby World Cup in Paris against England.

De Beer's first match is nearby as the Windhoek Gymnasium School was invited to Japan for the Sanix World Rugby Youth Tournament for 2020. The tournament will host eight top school rugby teams, which include New Zealand, Australia, France, South Africa, England and Japan. Enditem
