Os du Randt : Scrum.com

Arguably the finest loose-head prop of all time, Du Randt was a powerful scrummager with a notable work-rate who earned a total of 80 caps for his country during an injury-plagued career.

Du Randt, or the Ox as he was nicknamed during his playing days, was part of South Africa's historic triumph at the 1995 Rugby World Cup and was the last active member of that squad. His final match was the 2007 Rugby World Cup Final, where the Springboks beat England 15-6, with Du Randt playing the entire 80 minutes.

He was sidelined for three years by injury between 2000-2003 but battled back to reclaim a place in the Springboks' ranks in 2004. He retired as the most-capped South African forward (a mark that has since been eclipsed by John Smit and Victor Matfield) and is currently the fifth most-capped Springbok of all-time.

He played the majority of his provincial rugby with the Free State Cheetahs although he spent a season with the Blue Bulls. His Super Rugby career also began with the Cheetahs before moving onto the Cats with the introduction of the franchise system. He would later also represent the Bulls and the Cheetahs in the competition.

He re-joined his former provincial employers, the Cheetahs, as scrum coach in 2009.
