At the 1979 Toyota annual national club rugby tournament, Louw scored five tries in Maties's game against Pukke, who lost 9-97.
Appropriately enough, he finished his test career just over four years later with a match on 27 October 1984 against South America and Spain at Cape Town.
The increasing pressure from internal and international opposition to apartheid had rung the death knell for international competition by South Africa's sports teams.
Cape Town socialite and daughter of Rugby ledgend Rob Louw, Roxy is best known for being a talented former competitive surfer turned actress and super model, who was recently voted one of FHM Magazine’s 100 sexiest women in the world. We all love pro surfers, shapers and sponsors – their blogs whet our appetites for the endless summer dream.
Roxy’s blog is featured on Mushburger.com, it’s an intimate way to follow Roxy on her travels around the world as she takes you behind the scenes of her bikini model shoots, lets loose on nights out on the town and enjoys quiet dinners at home with friends. But nowhere is the surf blog more alive than in the online journals of everyday surfers whose addiction to riding waves can mean less time in the barrel and more time paddling into cold, choppy, waist-high Mushburger.
It isn’t hard to see why Roxy Louw would be one of our picks for Gym Paws™ Fit Girls.
