Biography

The lock is one imposing figure with a tremendous work-rate. He is without a doubt the tallest player at the Toyota Cheetahs at 2.09m. Du Preez earned a big reputation during the recent SuperSport Rugby Challenge. While he has the ability to call the lineout, due to his size has also been somewhat of an enforcer.

Du Preez joined the Toyota Cheetahs from the Lions, where he played for the team from the Highveld in the Super Rugby. He has a distinction of being the tallest player ever to play in the Super Rugby. Despite being as tall as he is, and tipping the scales at 115kg, he is also very mobile on the park.
