SA schools loosehead 2013
January 20, 2014, 17:21:40

Thomas du Toit, who has signed for the Sharks U19 side, along with Steph du Toit's younger brother, Johan who is a blindside flanker.

 

Simply put, Thomas is a machine. A player for Sharks fans to get very excited about. Thomas weights 132kg and recently tested the best of all the new Sharks players meaning that his power and speed were off the charts. He in fact ran a 5.4 seconds for the 40m dash which is insane. He’s a good ball carrier in the loose and looks to have a sound scrumming technique.

 

One to look out for along with Robert du Preez's twin sons......one a lock, the other a blindside flanker

 [removed], isnt one of Du Preez sons a flyhalf?
I may be wrong, but I thought one of them played 10 for the juniors last year?

Thanks for the info.   Can you remember which school(s) Thomas and Johan du Toit played for?   I cannot remember seeing them playing for the National School team against the  England, Wales and France school teams in August though - but that could have been the result of race-based selections.  


Just one more thing.   The Sharks slipped up by not contracting Duhan van der Merwe as a wing.   This guy was the top player in Craven week this year and we will see a lot of him in future.   He is 1,94 and weighs 96 kgs.  Will show Engelbrecht and Basson a clean pair of heels in any race.

 What are the chances that we might see the two Du Toits as well as the Robert Du Preez' sons on a  "those" list of Boks to be included in the Bok squads for the test against Wales as well as the RC? :D

 Flash, there is 3 of them. His twins are both forwards and his other son and namesake is a flyhalf. Very blessed family.

I just feel sorry for this prop [removed] mentions now as his career is likely over before it has begun. I mean, every other call fattex has made has turned to [removed] and I see no end in sight until he admits he knows [removed] all, shuts up and listens to guys much wiser than he like myself.

[removed], listen to me buddy for I can help you!

Johan du Toit can ay most be 19 years old if he is the younger brother of Pieter-Steph.   I must admit I did not watch most of the Vodacom and Group 1 CC matches - so am not aware of his performances for Boland.   Hope he is more the size of Pieter-Steph and not the sixe of his lightweight and smaller grandfather - Piet Spiere.   :D:D:D

Mike, he played Boland schools not senior side, he is only 19 and is smaller than his brother at 1.94m, hence playing flank.....apparently is a hard nut like his brother

Thanks.   The Sharks need desperately a real no 7 flank.  They have a dolt and a fat ou at present that cannot compete at pace.    Will watch out for him in future.
