Post Oldest Springbok and first heart transplant team docter died
Dr. Cecil Moss 92 the oldest Springbok and anaethetist died octer at the World's first heart transplant on Louis Washkansky had in Newlands Cape Town. 50 Years back in '67 dr. Chris Barnard transplanted Denise Darvall's heart to Washkansky. drs Cecil Moss and Ozinsky did the aneathasia.
Cecil Moss played 4 tests for the Boks in their 4-0 series over nz in '49
He coached the Boks in '82-'89.

The belief in Springboks was that when they play a Jewish guy they are unbeatable. Okey Geffin , Cecil Moss , Wilf Rosenberg , Sid Nomis and Joel Stransky to name a few were sometimes picked on that belief that funny enough worked

Geffin was an interesting character ... prop and SA goal kicker, quite a war record, POW etc and eventually co-opted into the Jewish Hall of Fame. Extremely well respected on and off the field.
