Why do so many SA Rugby stars have blonde hair but normal South Africans don't?

That's just a tribe of people within that nation -Dinka, if I'm not mistaken.
(I don't think everyone in South Sudan are from the Dinka tribe.)
On average, as an entire nation the Dutch are the tallest on the planet.
South Sudan is a pretty new nations and there doesn't seem to have any officially data on height from there.

Cool, once they figure it out, they can officially report it and take their rightful place at the top...but until such time, the Dutch are the tallest nation on the planet.

The Dinka people are one of the tallest tribe in Africa together with with the Tutsi of Rwanda.
  • Average Male Height= 182.6cm ( 5ft 11.9 in) in a survey of 52 Dinka men done between 1953-1954
  • Average Male Height = 176.4 cm (5 ft 9.4 in) in a survey done in 1995 ( probably as a result of poor nutrition due to the prolonged war in the area).
Side Note: I haven't read the entire article and I don't know how trustworthy "steemit" is, so take it with a pinch of salt.
2nd EDIT: Wait, just their "massive" sample of "52 men" :laugh:
