Du Toit to become one of the heaviest Boks ever

SHARE

Du Toit joined the tour squad on Monday in Cardiff and if he is capped will become one of heaviest Springboks of all time. 

According to his Sharks' profile, Du Toit weighs in at the 136kg prop, which is just two kilograms lighter than Rudi 'Vleis' Visagie.

Visagie weighed in at 138kg when the Boks faced France in 1993.

Du Toit is a kilogram heavier than Bok legend Os du Randt and six kilos heavier than the 130kg Ollie Le Roux.

Tendai Mtawarira sustained a groin injury in Saturday’s 35-6 victory over Italy in Padua, and while the experienced front ranker will be afforded the maximum time to recover, it was decided to call up Du Toit as extra cover.

Meanwhile, the Springbok squad arrived in Cardiff on Sunday following their victory over Italy. The match in Cardiff is the final Test of the Springboks’ November Tour.
