Former Springok flyhalf hangs up his boots

Former Springbok flyhalf Gaffie du Toit who scored 108 points for South Africa in 11 tests, and 153 points for the Springboks in other matches, has decided to hang up his boots.

The 34-year-old, joined the South Western District Eagles midway through last year alongside Bevin Fortuin, Jandré Blom and Wickus Liebenberg, but injured his knee towards the end of last season and has been off the field ever since.

Du Toit’s decision comes as a huge blow for SWD’s Currie Cup campaign.

The pivot was set to play a big role for SWD in the forthcoming Currie Cup season, but now leaves the Ostrich Farmers without a recognised flyhalf.

It is believed that Du Toit will take up an appointment in the Bethlehem area and that he would get involved in coaching at a later stage.
