James small the record breaker

James Small (born 10 February 1969) is a former South African rugby union footballer who played on the wing for the Springboks. His international debut was against the All Blacks in 1992 and he made his final appearance against Scotland in 1997. He was the leading try scorer in the 1996 Super 12 season.

Small faced Jonah Lomu as his opposite man in the final of the 1995 World Cup. Lomu had scored four tries in New Zealand's semi final against England, but Small and his teammates managed to contain Lomu, preventing him from scoring. The Springboks won the match and the Cup.

Small's career was marred by his verbal abuse, notably becoming the first Springbok to ever be sent off, as a result of dissent towards referee Ed Morison. Small was also alleged by his teammate Chester Williams to have uttered racist abuse towards him in his authorised biography, though as an opponent in provincial rugby, not as a Springbok teammate.
