The physically menacing appearance of this 128kg, 1.89m front-row giant is perfectly captured in his nickname, ‘The Tank’.

And, the interesting thing is that, despite 37 Super Rugby and 12 Springbok test caps to date, the 24-year-old is still some way from realising his formidable potential.

Thomas du Toit’s transition from loosehead to tighthead prop has been completed, meaning that he can pack on both sides of the scrum with equal destructive force. And, as the recent RWC has shown, the game is still won and lost in the engine room.
