Montgomery burst onto the international scene in 1997 after being plucked from relative obscurity by then Bok coach Carel du Plessis.

The speedster scored a try on his Test debut at centre, but blossomed fully when Nick Mallett moved him to fullback following an injury to Justin Swart on the 1997 tour.

He celebrated his 50th Test cap in November 2001 against Italy and is only the third South African to have scored more than 200 points in Test rugby. In his 50 tests, Monty has scored 261 points from 15 tries, 42 conversions, 31 penalties and 3 drop goals.

He was a SA Schools representative in 1992-93 before joining Bob Skinstad, Robbie Fleck and Selborne Boome in the highly successful Western Province under-21 team.

He made his Super 12 debut for the Stormers in 1996 .

For the past three seasons, Montgomery has been playing for Newport Gwent Dragons in Wales where he has earned a reputation for creating chance out of nothing and as an accurate and reliable goalkicker.

Montgomery broke his own Springbok record for points scored in a Test
season on the 2005 end-of-year tour, finishing with 158 from 12
matches.

He also became the first Springbok to go past 500 points in
Tests earlier in the season and now has 573. Montgomery spent 2002 and 2003 playing for Welsh club side Newport before South Africa’s
Springbok eligibility rules were loosened after Jake White’s
appointment as coach.

He returned to live in South Africa midway through last year, signing to play for the Sharks in the Absa Currie Cup and Vodacom Super 14.
