In Montpellier in 2007 an unknown player born in Zimbabwe was too fast for the player regarded as the best winger in the world. Calls of 'The try of the tournament surely' and 'Zee Ngwenya left Bryan Habana for dead' live on fresh in the memory. The lasting impact made by the USA winger against South Africa in Rugby World Cup 2007 resulted in him securing a long term deal with Biarritz whom he joined not long after the World Cup. It also gave the USA added exposure and arguably aided the sports profile within the country to now be in a much healthier position than prior to the World Cup in France. The international future of Ngwenya remain unknown. Reports have suggested that he will not be seleceted again for the USA Eagles.
