As an under-9 player, with his first touch of the ball, Os knocked on. According to brother Kobus the young boy waved to his parents and didn't see the kick-off was aimed straight at him. Fortunately things picked up from there and last year he was ranked the second best loosehead prop of all time in a survey by the respected Rugby World magazine. Os has surprising speed, agility and ball skills for his beefy frame as well as a soft spot for big hits - as the Rolls Royce of fullbacks Andre Joubert can testify after a try-saving tackle in a Currie Cup match between Free State and Natal a few years ago.
