Bakkies Botha finishes off his illustrious career with his best Dan Biggar impression (Video)

Good effort

South Africa legend Bakkies Botha played his final game as a professional rugby player on Saturday.

With someone who was as big a personality as the South African, you always knew he would finish it in hilarious style.

Playing for the Barbarians, he was allowed take the conversion resulting from long-time team-mate Victor Matfield’s final minute try in the Baa Baas’ 49-31 defeat to Argentina at Twickenham.

The former Toulon lock was less hard man and more funnyman at the end of the game, though, as he channelled his inner Dan Biggar in taking the final kick of the match.

His technique may not be up to much but he’s got his Biggar down to a tee.
