Achievements: Rugby. Louis Babrow, made his debut on 26 Jun 1937. The Smithfield born, Grey College educated lad went on to gain 5 caps, being on the winning side 4 times with a single loss against New Zealand at Athletic Park, Wellington although being a part of the victorius 1937 Springbok team in New Zealand must have alleviated the pain of that loss!

Babrow was chosen for the final, series-deciding test of the 1937 Springbok tour of New Zealand. The test fell on the Jewish Day of Atonement, but Babrow decided to play, arguing that, with the time difference, he would have played the game before the Day of Atonement had dawned in South Africa!
