Pieter-Steph du Toit

20th Aug 1992 1.98m/114kg No 4 Lock

The powerful young lock has shone at age-group level over the last few years for the Sharks, and announced himself on the world stage playing at blindside flank for the victorious Baby Bok team that claimed the IRB Junior World Championship in 2012.

He has a dangerous blend of power and speed which makes him tough to bring down. Making his Springbok debut soon after, he suffered terribly with injuries.

Coming back to fitness towards the end of the 2015 Super Rugby season he slipped straight back into the Springbok Squad and was selected for the 2015 RWC.

Soon after his selection into the Springbok squad for the June 2016 Test series, du Toit was hit with a hamstring injury and was withdrawn from the squad, with Franco Mostert coming in as his replacement.

In May 2017 Du Toit was named in the Springbok to face France in June, so far he has made 20 international appearances and has scored 3 tries

du Toit entered the 2018 Super Rugby season with 54 caps since making his debut in the competition in 2012 for the Sharks.

In May he was named in the Springbok squad to face England and Wales during the 2018 June Internationals.

The 32-Test cap versatile forward was named as the Springbok captain to face Wales and will be Rassie Erasmus' first Springbok captain and will lead the side for the first time.

Du toit heads into the 2018 Rugby Championship with 36 test caps.
