Winning the Rugby World Cup still hasn’t quite sunk in for World Player of the Year Pieter-Steph du Toit, who remembers the final as a wonderful blur.
Pieter-Steph du Toit was the big winner at the BrightRock Players Choice Awards taking away the coveted Players' Player of the Year award as well as two others.
Pieter-Steph du Toit’s ascension to global player of the year was especially apt because he gave the Boks qualities in his berth other major nations lacked, says Rob Houwing.
South African success continued at the World Rugby Awards in Tokyo with Pieter-Steph du Toit, Rassie Erasmus and the Springbok team taking home the major honours.
Whatever the effect on morale of Eben Etzebeth potentially vacating RWC, from a purely staffing perspective the Boks are dreamily covered at lock, says Rob Houwing.
