If that's who I think it is (having cheated - I had to know), that's a stinker (in a good way). I'll be very impressed if anyone gets it honestly (either that or my Googling skills are crap!).

Thought the same and double checked.....wrong. He played in a 92-93 ODI series and again in 2005 having gone back to cricket after rugby (so says Wikipedia anyway).

Such a hard question, especially since the country only played in that one cricket World Cup.

Rudie van Vuuren, in 2003.
I cheated, but I think we need to move on if we are to save this thread.
