Du Toit recalled to Sharks squad


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

We’re not sure why, exactly, but young Pieter-Steph du Toit appears to have been summoned back to Durban to join the Sharks Super Rugby squad this week, thus presumably ruling him out of contention for the SA Under 20 match against Argentina this weekend.

Photos from today’s Sharks training session show du Toit playing an active part in proceedings and it might not be completely beyond the bounds of probability that he could feature this weekend, especially given the anticipated loss of another physical youngster in Marcell Coetzee.

The Sharks may well have identified the strong Chiefs pack as a source of concern; without Coetzee in the mix, it’s unlikely they’d be able to field a 5-man forwards bench as counter, unless someone like du Toit or Tera Mtembu is included. With the latter being somewhat more of a skilful player than a battering ram, it’s not that surprising that the burly young Bolander is being looked at.

The other interesting development is that Beast Mtawarira, based on photographic evidence, appeared to play at least some part in the training session and had no visible means of support to his injured ankle. I’ll let you all jump to your own conclusions about that one…
