        "title": "Experts Laud Introduction Of Fingerprinting Banking, Say It'll Reduce Identity Theft |",
        "body": "By Ibukun Emiola\n\nIbadan, June 27, 2022 Some experts have commended the introduction of fingerprinting banking, saying that it will reduce identity theft, said to be on the rise in banking, e-commerce and other financial activities in Nigeria.\n\nThey expressed their views in separate interviews with Naija247News in Ibadan on Monday.\n\nNaija247news reports that there has been an increase in cyber fraud in some financial institutions in the country, according to Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System (NIBSS), in its industry fraud report.\n\nMr Gbenga Adeleye, Head, Human Resources Development, Science and Technology Cluster Committee, African Union, Economic, Social and Cultural Council (ECOSOCC) Nigeria, said the country's economy would benefit greatly from biometric technology as a way of enhancing efficient financial transactions.\n\n\"This is due to a unified credit performance system that will allow lenders and credit bureaus to implement the Central Bank of Nigeria's \"Know Your Customer (KYC)\" policy.\n\n\"Also, unethical practices will be reduced, and banking activities appropriately monitored, as customers who borrow money from one bank and default will not be able to do same money from other banks without being detected,\" Adeleye said.\n\nA Financial Consultant with L.A. Konsult, Mrs Lolade Adesola, said with the increasing cases of identity theft, biometric identification appeared to be a veritable way out.\n\n\"If it is introduced at every level, it will be very helpful, because fingerprints are unique and good for identification purposes and financial transactions, even for identical twins.\n\n\"It is a good step if financial agencies get the infrastructure to be able to use fingerprints for identification. It is a good way forward,\" Adesola said.\n\nShe, however, added that there must be a slow transition period for use of fingerprints as a biometric technology for trading and transaction purposes.\n\nAlso, Mr Tunji Adepeju, a financial expert, described fingerprinting as about the most secure biometric technology and a better way of checking identity theft.\n\n\"Somebody can forge a signature to sign a cheque or document, but the use of biometric technology, such as fingerprinting, will be able to detect it.\n\n\"Also, there are times you want to make withdrawals and you are not with your ATM card or even your cheque book; fingerprinting banking will be available for such persons to do their financial transactions.\n\n\"Although such service may attract extra charges by financial institutions, it would have, at least, solved the problem and guarded against possible frauds in the system,\" he said.\n\nAdepeju also stated that use of fingerprinting could help in achieving more financial inclusion, as those who couldn't use ATM cards, for whatever reason, would have alternative means of carrying out their financial transactions.\n\nDr Oludayo Tade, of Department of Sociology, University of Ibadan, said that fingerprinting was good, as it simplified the problems associated with other methods of accessing banking services.\n\nTade, a criminologist, however, stated that the security system associated with the new method should be improved upon to enhance its efficiency and effectiveness.",

        "body": "Novak Djokovic celebrates his first-round victory at Wimbledon on Monday. Picture: Getty Images\n\nDefending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic became the first player to win 80 matches at all four Grand Slams on Monday, while British teenager Emma Raducanu progressed safely to the second round at the All England Club.\n\nSix-time champion and top seed Djokovic saw off South Korea's Kwon Soo-woo 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.\n\nBut 20-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic was made to work after falling a break down in the opening two sets against his 81st-ranked opponent -- losing the second of those.\n\n\"Now we have got to 80 wins, let's get to 100,\" Djokovic told AFP.\n\nALSO READ: Nadal, Djokovic lead title chase as changes give Wimbledon a shake\n\nDjokovic, 35, is attempting to win a fourth successive Wimbledon title and join a select group.\n\nIn the Open era, only Bjorn Borg, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer have managed such a streak at the All England Club.\n\nMeanwhile, teenage star Carlos Alcaraz, a potential quarter-final opponent for Djokovic, came back from two sets to one down to defeat Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff.\n\nThe 19-year-old fired 30 aces and 73 winners in a dazzling display of shot-making to win 4-6, 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (7/3), 6-4.\n\n\"Last year, I played five sets in the first round here as well so this shows how much I like grass,\" joked Alcaraz.\n\nIn the women's tournament, US Open champion Raducanu beat Alison van Uytvanck 6-4, 6-4 on Monday to the delight of a partisan crowd on Wimbledon's Centre Court.\n\nThe 19-year-old British player, who was an injury doubt for the Grand Slam, struggled to impose herself early in the first-round match but broke serve in the seventh game.\n\nVan Uytvanck broke back but Raducanu again seized the initiative by breaking again and survived a tough test on her serve to take the first set 6-4.\n\nThe pair swapped breaks in the second set and Raducanu broke again in the ninth game, comfortably holding serve and sealing victory with a backhand volley to the delight of the crowd.\n\n\"It's an incredibly special feeling to be back at Wimbledon,\" said the British number one, who reached the fourth round last year.\n\n\"I felt the support the minute I walked out and walking around the grounds. I want to say thank you to everyone who has been here supporting, through the tough times as well. It's all worth it to play on Centre Court and come through with a win.\"\n\nRaducanu has struggled with a string of minor injuries since her sensational win at Flushing Meadows last year, including a side strain earlier this month.\n\nThe teenager did not drop a set in New York, becoming the first British female player to win a Grand Slam singles crown since Virginia Wade at Wimbledon in 1977.\n\nBut she has not won more than two matches at a tournament since.\n\nShe will take on France's Caroline Garcia for a place in the last 32.",

        "body": "A2X is still small compared to the JSE, but has attracted many of the JSE's top 40 companies.\n\nFinancial services group Discovery has approved a secondary listing on A2X Markets (A2X) - a competitor to the JSE - and its shares will be available for trade on the exchange from 4 July 2022.\n\nDiscovery is the latest blue-chip company to join the exchange, following the announcement that mining house Impala Platinum would be joining on 13 June 2022.\n\nDiscovery's listing brings the number of instruments available for trade on A2X to 69, with a combined market capitalisation of around R4.5 trillion.\n\nThough the addition of Discovery is a boost for A2X, it is still dwarfed by the JSE, which has 800 listed securities, about 400 listed companies, and a market capitalisation of well above R20 trillion.\n\nA2X, which was founded in 2014, is one of several stock exchanges, like the Cape Town Stock Exchange, which have emerged over the past few years to challenge the 136-year-old JSE.\n\nAlthough the A2X still has a long way to go when it comes to challenging the JSE on number of companies listed, it already has a solid record in attracting some of the biggest companies in the country.\n\nDiscovery will join other JSE Top 40 Index companies such as AngloGold Ashanti, Aspen, Exxaro, Growthpoint, Implats, Investec Ltd and Investec plc, Mr Price, Naspers, Nedbank, Nepi Rockcastle, Prosus, Remgro, Sanlam, Sasol, and Standard Bank on the A2X exchange.\n\nDiscovery will, however, retain its primary listing on the JSE and its issued share capital will be unaffected by its secondary listing on A2X.\n\nEven so, A2X CEO Kevin Brady was very happy to see Discovery join the exchange.\n\n\"Since its inception 30 years ago Discovery has become the undisputed shared-value insurance market-leader and we are delighted to welcome them to our market next week.\"",

        "body": "The law required that a person must have been a resident of the city for at least 30 days prior to the election.\n\nA New York state judge struck down a new law on Monday that gave hundreds of thousands of non-citizen residents of New York City the right to vote in municipal elections.\n\nJudge Ralph Porzio, of New York State Supreme Court for Staten Island, ruled the law violated the state constitution, which says that \" very citizen\" is entitled to vote.\n\nThe City Council, controlled by Democrats, passed the law last December, and it went into effect after both Mayor Bill de Blasio and his successor in January, Eric Adams, declined to either sign it or veto it.\n\nThe law allowed an estimated 800 000 to 1 million non-citizens living in the city as lawful permanent residents of the United States or with US authorization to work here to vote in elections for city-wide office, but not in state-wide or federal elections. There are about 6.7 million people of voting age in New York City.\n\nThe law required that a person must have been a resident of the city for at least 30 days prior to the election they wished to vote in, which critics of the law said was too short. Republicans opposed the law in part on the belief that a majority of immigrants are more likely to vote Democrat.\n\nALSO READ | Roe v Wade ruling disproportionately hurts Black women, experts say\n\nProponents of the law said it enfranchised the city's huge population of non-citizens who pay taxes and contribute to the life and culture of a city that has long been a beacon for immigrants, as symbolised by the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbour.\n\nOpponents, including the Republican Party and New York lawmakers who sued the city, said the law unfairly and unconstitutionally diluted the power of citizens' votes and would harm politicians by forcing them to restructure their election strategies.\n\nThere was no immediate comment from the City Council. The city's law department, which could challenge the ruling in a higher state court, said the city was evaluating its options.\n\n\"This is a disappointing court ruling for people who value bringing in thousands more New Yorkers into the democratic process,\" the statement said.\n\nMichael Tannousis, a Republican who represents parts of Staten Island and Brooklyn in the New York State Assembly, was one of the plaintiffs who accused the council of trying to manipulate the electoral system.\n\n\"As the son of immigrants that came to this country legally and worked tirelessly to become citizens, I consider voting to be a sacred right bestowed on American citizens,\" he said in a statement. \"The idea that a person can move to New York City and register to vote after 30 days is preposterous and ripe for fraud.\"",

        "title": "HORSE RACING (PART 1): Odds against the Sport of Kings, the last stand for Thoroughbred horses",
        "body": "The ancestors of the horses we see today originated on the Asian Steppe and were probably captured and ridden about 3,000 years ago. As transport in peace and war, they utterly changed human civilisation. No longer a necessity, they're now mainly used for sport and leisure. In the first of a four-part investigation into horse racing, we look at the rock stars: Thoroughbreds.\n\nHorses are born to run and when they do, they're beautiful to watch. Thundering across a plain, mane and tail streaming, hardly seeming to touch the ground: it's a sight that has enthralled humans for thousands of years. Nervous wariness was their nature and speed their protection from predation.\n\nIt was for their strength and speed that we became their primary predator, not to eat -- though they were eaten -- but as transport.\n\nThe horse became a metaphor for royalty and power, a symbol of elegance, primary creatures of conveyance and chariots of war. They kicked human civilisation into fast forward and it's never looked back.\n\nBut it's over.\n\nThis is the horse's final century -- their strength replaced by machinery, their memory living on in statues, paintings and the pits of knacker's yards throughout the world. Though engines are still measured in horsepower, they no longer involve horses.\n\nTheir last redoubt is the world of sport.\n\nIt's unlikely they'd choose to run around a track with a human on their back smacking their flanks. But they're required to do so in very large numbers, sometimes earning their owners and those who bet on them huge sums of money, and sometimes dying.\n\nThe fate of those who can't stay the pace is worrying.\n\nIn South Africa, the National Society for the Protection of Animals (NSPCA) notes two types of horseracing: Thoroughbred racing and bush racing -- and disapproves of both. That's far too simple. While formal racing involves only Thoroughbreds and well-kept tracks, months of digging by Daily Maverick came up with an additional range of styles and places where racing takes place on a weekly basis.\n\nThere's tripling, trotting and flat racing, as in flat out, (all of which can be formal traditional racing), dirt racing and street racing. Some traditional races have well-kitted horses and jockeys, some horses are much-admired and ridden bareback and still others are horses in terrible condition (sometimes ridden to death). There are reports of township races on tar by youths high on tik.\n\nIn this, the first of a four-part series, we investigate an institution in decline: Thoroughbred racing. They're the kind of horse you see on advertisements for cigarettes and booze, replete with yelling crowds, stylish outfits and beautiful horses throwing back their proud heads for the TV crews.\n\nThoroughbreds were developed in 17th and 18th century England, when native mares were bred with imported Oriental stallions of Barb, Byerley Turkoman and Darley Arabian horses. Apparently, all modern Thoroughbreds can trace their pedigrees to three stallions originally imported into England in that period.\n\nThey're preferred for racing because they're tough, fast and perform with maximum exertion. A Thoroughbred can reach over 60km/h in six strides taking just 2.5 seconds, which beats a Ferrari.\n\nAmerican biokinetics engineer George Pratt was awed by their energy potential: \"The horse that walks around, eats grass, looks at the view and gives every appearance of tranquillity was, in fact, designed by God to explode.\"\n\nBut high speed and exertion can result in accidents and health problems such as bleeding from the lungs. This means they have to be handled with care.\n\nIn South Africa, Thoroughbred racing is shrinking and becoming less profitable, with declining breeders, jockeys and even race tracks. An obvious place to start exploring the world of fast horses is a race track.\n\nKenilworth Race Course in Cape Town on a Wednesday had none of the buzz of excitement the hype of racing leads you to expect. Despite beautiful winter sunshine, the stands were empty, a few owners and trainers were standing around chatting and horses were peering over stable doors. Perhaps there are buzz days, but this wasn't one of them.\n\nThe buildings of Cape Racing's star course are beautiful, the trees of the parade ring are old and shady, the track is thick lawn grass and the stables are spotless. It has genteel, old-world charm.\n\nDespite a missing fourth element of racing -- yelling crowds -- the other three were in place: the horses with their owners, trainers, grooms and jockeys, the control systems and what can best be described as the punter's film shoot, which records races and broadcasts them to betting shops, home computers and television screens around the world.\n\nDeep below the stands, surrounded by screens, chief stipe (stipendiary steward) Ernie Rodrigues and his team were monitoring every aspect of the race.\n\n\"We're here entirely for the welfare of the horses,\" he said. \"We see any problem, we pull the horse.\"\n\nThey're mostly former jockeys and know horses intimately. They're supported by two vets who inspect each animal -- one at the start and the other at the end of each race.\n\nThe jockeys, weighed (and barred if overweight) then ride their horses to the starting gates which, on signal, clang open and the horses explode into action. The winning jockey and horse are led into a small winners' enclosure to be interviewed, filmed and photographed.\n\nThe whole affair -- from owners, horses, safety checks, races and prizes -- has the air of a closely choreographed live-stream film shoot packaged for worldwide betting audiences who participate using their credit cards by \"owning\" a share of the horse for the duration of the race.\n\nMoney is won, but more often lost.\n\nIn South Africa, horse racing dates back to 1795 and evolved through individual clubs centred on city tracks, with betting run by totes. The term tote comes from totaliser, where the money bet is divided among those with winning tickets, less the tote fee and tax.\n\nIf you were the betting type before other forms of gambling kicked in, horseracing was the only game in town. You could go to races and place bets or queue at grubby off-course totes and put money on your favourite horse.\n\nThe sport had always been heavily taxed at provincial level.\n\nBut then came bantustans -- faux-independent \"countries\" dreamed up by apartheid. Free of South Africa's gambling laws, they permitted casinos with card tables and slot machines. Then, in 2000, the Lotto arrived and, together, these systems dangled life-changing wins and were taxed at lower rates. Horseracing took a knock from which it has never really recovered.\n\nA few Highveld clubs got together and petitioned the Gauteng government to lower their tax burden. It agreed, but insisted they rationalise, leading to a corporatisation process.\n\nThis resulted in the formation of three geographical organisations based, respectively, in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape. They're licenced through the National Horse Racing Authority (NHA) of southern Africa (including Zimbabwe) and funded by punters through totes. Bets are also placed through bookmakers offering various combinations with far higher individual winnings.\n\nThe NHA keeps good statistics. For its officials housed in lavish offices in Turffontein, Gauteng, those stats must be extremely worrying.\n\nAccording to NHA chief executive officer Vee Moodley, the horseracing industry is contracting at an alarming rate: \"The current pandemic and economic climate conditions are wreaking havoc on a local and international front,\" he wrote in the annual report.\n\n\"The South African Racing statistics for the past 30 years give an overview of the decline of the industry.\" He warned it was in danger of falling into a state of anarchy.\n\nThe Thoroughbred Breeders Association echoed his concern.\n\n\"The TBA is of the view that the situation in which the sport of Thoroughbred horseracing currently finds itself is dire. Without immediate government intervention, the sport may not survive.\"\n\nFrom 1990 to 2020 the number of starters in NHA races dropped from 49,482 to 35,232 horses -- there was a 37% reduction in trainers and 33% fewer jockeys.\n\nBetween those years, half the formal racecourses in the country closed and there was an 84% drop in breeders or stud farms (though average earnings per horse jumped from R13,000 to R44,000 -- 238%).\n\nAccording to owner and racing journalist Robyn Louw, this is probably because of the rising cost of producing them and an uncertain yearling sale market.\n\n\"I would guess that, due to the cost of keeping a racehorse, people are quicker to retire the less good ones and more careful about placing the ones who have a chance to earn. Therefore there are fewer starts per horse (which seems to be the trend worldwide), but they're trying to make each start count,\" she said.\n\nOver tea at a fancy club, a horse owner who did not want to be named explained the current problem:\n\n\"There's so much gambling competition and horseracing clubs haven't looked after their customers. If you think of a casino with all sorts of packages and food and linked hotels -- they're customer-focused. And the Lotto is so much easier and more accessible.\n\n\"You don't need brains to buy a Lotto ticket. Horseracing requires homework and understanding the mathematics of it.\"\n\nRacing was already in trouble from competitors for the gambler's purse, then came the Steinhoff debacle. In 2017, the international Steinhoff group set up by its then CEO, Markus Jooste, was investigated in Germany for accounting irregularities and shares collapsed, losing R300-billion in market value.\n\nLinked to it was a holding company called Mayfair Speculators owned by Silver Oak Trust, consisting of Jooste and his son-in-law.\n\nMayfair housed Jooste's racehorse business with the largest horse breeding farm in the country, stabling hundreds of the country's top horses. It went under, placing around 300 Thoroughbreds on the market.\n\nThoroughbred racing's problems didn't end there.\n\nIn 2019, Phumelela Gaming & Leisure, the JSE-listed horseracing and betting tote in Gauteng -- with many directors reportedly linked to Jooste -- was dragged to court by the Public Protector for privatising the country's horseracing industry.\n\nIt controlled Turffontein, The Vaal, Kimberley (Flamingo Park), Fairview and Arlington in Port Elizabeth and had a management agreement in place with Cape Racing. This essentially meant it controlled all the formal racing venues in South Africa outside KwaZulu-Natal.\n\nAs its troubles mounted, Phumelela went into business rescue with a debt claimed at R1.7-billion, placing racing throughout South Africa at risk.\n\nThe sport was saved by the formation of 4Racing by Mary Oppenheimer and Daughters with an investment of R560-million.\n\nA similar racing rescue was required in Durban, saved by what amounts to a takeover by the bookmaker Hollywood Bets, the main sponsor. Its CEO, Owen Heffer, is one of the biggest racehorse owners in the country.\n\nAmid all that, the pandemic hit hard, closing down all racetracks for months with costs unremitting and no revenue coming in. The prospect for Thoroughbred racing in South Africa has never looked worse.\n\nYou have to be wealthy to breed and race Thoroughbreds, but that doesn't mean racing them is likely to be the source of your wealth. The reason is that relatively few horses ever win race prize money and the cost of keeping them is high.\n\nA large number are bred to be sold at yearling sales to new owners who hope to race them. But you can never tell if that will pay off either. It depends on your skill at spotting a potential winner -- and that's often a hit-or-miss business.\n\n\"You used to be able to make money out of breeding racehorses,\" said the horse owner I quoted earlier, \"but it's increasingly becoming an expensive hobby for people who have other forms of income to support it.\n\n\"A mare has one foal a year. I may have 20 mares and it costs a considerable amount to have them covered by top stallions. There can be birth or deformity problems, so maybe I get 15 foals. It costs around R10,000 a month to raise a Thoroughbred to race age. You sell some when they're a year old, keep some.\n\n\"Somebody buys a yearling for, say, R200,000... it costs them R120,000 a year to keep, so you're in for over R300,000 by the time it hits the track.\n\n\"Maybe you get lucky, it wins a few races. That money doesn't come back easily. Horses are fragile, it tears a tendon, have a break -- there's a whole host of things that could happen.\n\n\"You used to be able to write off your losses to tax, but that's no longer possible. In the past, if one of your horses won, it would pay for nearly a year's keep for your stable. Now, with rising costs, you might pay for two or three months. We used to export horses overseas, but with African horse sickness restrictions, that's now a problem.\"\n\nWith the radical decline in the number of breeders, stud farms, racecourses and jockeys, and with tote problems, formal Thoroughbred horseracing is clearly not a sport you'd place your bets on. But some have, in spadefuls.\n\nHorseracing is about horses and racing, right? Wrong. It's about money... huge amounts.\n\nYou'd be excused for thinking horse owners race to add to their wealth, but in comparison to the totes and bookies, they're small cheese. Let's look at the numbers, starting global.\n\nIn 2021, the world's income from online gambling alone was R3.7-trillion, the 49th biggest industry on the planet. About 26% of the global population has gambled at some time, but only 13.5% win in the long run.\n\nThe South African Gambling Board estimates one in 10 South Africans engages in gambling activities and the revenue spent is growing at around 6%.\n\nGambling addiction is huge, with at least half of problem gamblers becoming involved in crime to feed their addiction. Basically, gambling is a mug's game which drains income if you gamble but can make you rich fast if you organise it.\n\nLet's spool back to horseracing. Every single day of the week in South Africa there's an NHA-sanctioned Thoroughbred race meet in progress, with anything from 75 to 95 horses competing. In 2020 there were 3,457 races.\n\nAn example of a Group 3 stake is Strelitzia or Godolphin Barb at Scottsville racecourse. The total pot for each is R175,000, portioned out at R109,000 for a win, R35,000 for second place and R17,500 for third place (that win is less than it costs to keep the horse for a year).\n\nThe average pot for a Group 1 race like the Durban July is a lot more -- about R1.8-million -- but there are far fewer such races.\n\nEach year, more than 26,000 entries from among 44,444 registered Thoroughbreds will be chalked to races across six NHA tracks netting R255.8 million in prize money. That sounds a lot, but not relative to the country's 368 totes and bookies.\n\nAccording to 2019/20 Gambling Board statistics, they netted R2.5-billion in revenue for horseracing.\n\nAn eye-watering sum? Nope, a drop in the ocean of total gambling revenue of R32.7-billion a year, earning the South African government just R3-billion in taxes. How's that for a low tax return?\n\nBy comparison, the business information outfit Who Owns Whom says the more traditional gambling industry -- which includes horseracing -- is facing unparalleled losses.\n\nOf course, revenues are better if you do it illegally. The Gambling Board estimates that illicit gambling drains R1.9-billion a year from the fiscus in undeclared money.\n\nA quarter of a century ago, horseracing was the only gambling outlet.\n\nToday, the king is casinos at 64% of turnover, with betting on all sports trailing at 16.8%. But if you're the betting type, it pays not to be too snooty. The most consistent money earner is online bingo.\n\nThere are two takeaways from all of this.\n\nThe first is that, for Thoroughbred owners, you have to be doing it for the love of the sport -- because you can't be doing it for money.\n\nRacing and race tracks are being kept alive by totes and bookies who need owners to shell out for top-class horses so they can rake in the loot. That might explain the 84% drop in breeders and stud farms in the past 20 years. In a tough financial climate, why pay to feed the sharks?\n\nAnd second, as Thoroughbred racing declines, informal racing is booming. But, not being regulated, it's often anarchic and sometimes spontaneous. There are no welfare regulations for the horses. And there's no control over races or incomes earned by owners and under-the-counter bookies from events taking place at hundreds of venues around the country.\n\nBefore we look at that, though, questions need to be asked about where Thoroughbreds go when they're no longer winning races or useful breeders (only about half of those registered are entered in formal races).\n\nBetween the NHA racing industry and the sometimes heartbreakingly cruel informal system is a thread that needs following.

        "title": "SPRINGBOK RUGBY: Pieter-Steph's comeback will have to wait at least one more week",
        "body": "A slightly slower than hoped-for return from shoulder surgery means the Springbok flank is not eligible to play against Wales this weekend.\n\nThere is no telling how great his already great rugby career would be if Pieter-Steph du Toit had enjoyed less bad luck with injuries. After a shoulder injury ruled him out of 10 of the Boks' 13 Tests in 2021, Du Toit will miss Saturday's first Test of 2022 against Wales in Pretoria.\n\nNot for the first time in his storied journey to the pinnacle of the sport, injury has held him back. Du Toit will miss the opportunity to earn his 59th Test cap at Loftus. A slightly slower than hoped return from shoulder surgery means he is not eligible this weekend.\n\nSpringbok coach Jacques Nienaber won't consider the bruising flank for the match because Du Toit won't be able to train until Thursday at the earliest.\n\nThe Boks' strict \"don't train on Monday, don't play on Saturday\" policy was enforced. There are no exceptions, even for a three-time SA Rugby Player of the Year and the 2019 World Player of the Year.\n\nThe 29-year-old made his Test debut nine years ago and should have at least 75 caps by now, even allowing for some injuries. But Du Toit's catalogue of blows reads like the script for a horror movie.\n\nHe has had left- and right-ankle surgery, two knee operations, a cracked sternum and, perhaps most serious of all, acute compartment syndrome, which nearly cost him his left leg. Twice. That's not even listing the usual rugby ailments of dislocated fingers, muscle tears and general battering.\n\nThat last injury, where amputation of the limb was a serious consideration during a critical few hours following what seemed a fairly innocuous blow to the leg during a Super Rugby match in February 2020, was enough to make his physiotherapist wife blanch.\n\nOnly Du Toit's previous experience of the same injury, sustained when he was a high school player, and the quick thinking of the Stormers' doctor, Jason Suter, averted catastrophe at the time.\n\nAcute compartment syndrome is a potentially fatal condition that blocks blood supply from one area of the body to another as a result of an inflamed muscle compartment. Following trauma, the fascia -- the connective tissue that keeps the muscle in place -- cannot stretch and the resultant swelling causes a disruption in blood flow to nerves, capillaries and muscles.\n\nDu Toit was only the 43rd person in recorded medical history to have suffered this condition. When he alerted Suter that he had lost feeling in his leg after the match had ended, the physician immediately dispatched him to Vincent Pallotti Hospital.\n\nWhat followed was a series of surgeries and doubts.\n\nThe initial operation saved Du Toit's leg, but the wound was massive. A slice the length of his thigh (about 40cm) was left open for more than a week. The muscle in his thigh was so inflamed that doctors could not pull the skin over the gash to stitch it.\n\nDu Toit had a second operation to try to close the wound, but still the gaping chasm could not be sealed, leaving the doctors with no choice but to put on a vacuum dressing that kept the wound covered while the swelling reduced.\n\nAfter 12 days, doctors were able to stitch the wound, but by then Du Toit had lost nearly 10kg, much of it from the loss of muscle mass in his leg.\n\nA gradual rehabilitation process followed, with Du Toit making his return to the field 398 days after sustaining the leg injury.\n\nThe comeback lasted for about two months before he suffered a shoulder injury in the second Test against the British & Irish Lions last July.\n\nIt seems the injury gods have tried their best to take away what the talent gods gave to Pieter-Steph. Only, he keeps coming back.\n\nBok assistant coach Deon Davids confirmed on Monday that Du Toit was out of the opening Test against Wales, but exact details were kept to a minimum. \"Everyone is available for the Test, except Pieter-Steph, who's still in his rehab phase,\" Davids said with the deadpan of a successful poker player.\n\nWhile the news is a blow for the Boks and for Du Toit himself, the flank is used to the trauma his body has endured in one of the cruellest of sports.\n\n\"Every time you get seriously injured, you wonder whether you can make it back and perform at the same standard, and whether you will be picked,\" Du Toit told Daily Maverick in a recent interview.\n\n\"It's a physical challenge to regain your fitness, but a mental test too, because those doubts are always there.\n\n\"It doesn't matter how many Tests I've played or what I've done with the Boks in the past. It doesn't matter that I've been in similar situations before. If anything, that makes it a bit harder, as you know how challenging it's going to be.\"\n\nDespite the setback, the Boks have a Test series to prepare for and while Du Toit's diagnosis was disappointing, there was a lot of enthusiasm in the squad. The full 43-man group gathered for the first time on Monday, with newly minted French Top 14 winner Handré Pollard reporting for duty.\n\nWhile it was a relief for the coaching staff to see the World Cup-winning flyhalf in one piece after a long French domestic season, talk of the contest against Wales quickly turned to scrumming.\n\nOn the eve of departing for South Africa, Wales coach Wayne Pivac declared that the Boks had the best scrum in the world. He's not wrong, but in the Test arena previous form doesn't mean much. The Boks will have to go out and prove their dominance again.\n\n\"Obviously, we would like to impose our presence in the scrums and deliver a good performance against them,\" Bok prop Ox Nche said.\n\n\"It doesn't mean that we were dominant in the scrums in the last game that it will be the same this time. The team that performs the best in that area on the day will come out on top.\"\n\nDespite many pundits writing off Wales going into the series, Davids said: \"If you look at the Welsh side closely, they have players with a lot of Test caps, while some of them also played for the British & Irish Lions.\n\n\"They have also had a few weeks to prepare together as a group, and if you look back, the games we have played against them, they have been close, so we are expecting them to be prepared and to show up.\"\n\nWith the match being played in Pretoria, altitude will come into play, but Davids said it didn't necessarily mean the Boks would have an advantage going into the clash.",
