Big Bok du Toit will be versatile weapon against Scotland

If any one player can personify
the strengths inherent in Springbok rugby, then Pieter-Stephanus du Toit is the man. A behemoth on the field, equally happy at lock or flanker; a typical Springbok grafter who rolls up his sleeves and goes to work with scant regard for personal glory.

He was described by World Cup-winning coach Jake White as the most talented player he had worked with and won the country’s player of the year award in 2016, admittedly a poor vintage.
