NICK Mallet is an expert rugby panellist on SuperSport­ and is highly regarded locally and internationally in this field of work.

He is a corporate motivational speaker and has just become an ambassador for Compass Cares wildlife calendar campaign.

Staff from Compass Medical Waste Services attended a corporate sports event at which Mallet was presenting.

The team had set up a calendar display and Mallet was so impressed with the campaign and the funds that Compass Cares has raised to help orphaned and injured wild animals over the years, that he signed up to endorse this worthwhile initiative.

Before going into rugby coaching, the highlights of his playing career included being selected for Western Province in 1977, while still at university.

From 1979 to 1980, he played for Oxford Blue Rugby Union and between 1982 and 1985 was part of the WP team that won four consecutive Currie Cups.

During this time Mallet also represented South Africa in the clash against the South American Jaguars in 1984. The high point of his coaching career was guiding South Africa to a 17-match unbeaten run between 1997 and 1998.

The Compass Cares 2018 African Kaleidoscope wildlife calendar is A3 in size, gift boxed and sells for R180 (excluding postage).

The smaller CD-size desk calendar, which features the same photos, retails for R50. All proceeds go to Crow to assist with the rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphaned and injured animals.

To order your calendar, email call 031 267 9700 or visit www.compasswasteservi

Compass Medical Waste Services would like to thank Mallet for championing our Compass Cares 2018 African Kaleidoscope wildlife calendar. - Supplied
