Nick Mallett is a Professional Motivational speaker and TV Commentator and is one of the leading authorities on Rugby and has coached not only the Springboks but most recently Italy.

Arguably, South Afrcia’s most successful rugby coach ever, Nicholas Vivian Howard Mallett was born on October 30, 1956 in Heartfordshire, England, taking a middle name from his mother Vivienne.

He came to Africa, being only six weeks old, when his family re-located to Zimbabwe.  His father Anthony took up a post as Headmaster of Peterhouse School, just outside of Harare.

Nick came to South Africa (age seven) when his father accepted the post of Headmaster at Bishop’s School in Cape Town. His father didn’t play rugby, distinguishing himself rather in cricket, both for the MCC and Kent.

Nick played his first game of rugby shortly after, at the age of eight, for the Western Province Preparatory School Under Nines.
