Gideon Gerhardus Helberg is a South African rugby union player who most recently played for the Pumas in the Currie Cup and Vodacom Cup.[1] His usual position is wing.

He also played for UP Tuks in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Varsity Cup competitions.

In 2011 it was revealed that he was involved in an affair with his girlfriend's mother, which led to a fake death photo of Helberg being supplied. The mother pleaded guilty to "enticement to commit assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm" and was given a suspended three-year jail sentence in November 2011.[2]
