CARDIFF — Giant Springbok rookie Pieter-Steph du Toit wants to become like his legendary grandfather after he heard that he has been selected as a reserve for tomorrow’s rugby Test against Wales at the Millennium Stadium.

Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer plans to make the 21-year-old Pieter-Steph du Toit the lock partner of Eben Etzebeth, who entered the rugby scene as yet another exciting Springbok prospect. Meyer, however, plans to expose Du Toit slowly to Test rugby.
