Anton Leonard (born Durban, 31 May 1974) is a South African former rugby union player and current coach. He played as a number 8.

Career

Playing for the Stormers, he was called up relatively late in the Springboks (25 years): he was called eventually by the coach Nick Mallett for the 1999 Rugby World Cup South African roster [1] where Leonard played two matches, his only two international caps, arriving third at the tournament.

Playing for the Bulls, he first retired in 2005; returning in late 2006, he won the 2007 Super 14 season and retired the next year. As coach, by late 2010 he became forwards coach for the Currie Cup team Griqualand West Griquas.
