This is why the veteran Springbok hooker is one of the most popular players on the planet.

Schalk Brits will forever be remembered as one of the most affable and popular players in world rugby.

He once again endeared himself to a worldwide audience by being typically chilled during the Springboks’ 66-7 victory over Canada on Tuesday.

Watch here as he engages in a hilarious jersey exchange with opposite number Andrew Qauttrin.

He also bowed to a ball carrier before a set-piece and had a poignant moment with the crowd when he was replaced.

It all just added to the Brits legend.
