Prodigious Talents Commit To The Cell C Sharks

Three of the most promising young rugby players in South Africa have committed their futures to The Sharks.  Jean-Luc du Preez, Daniel du Preez and Garth April have all extended their contracts until the end of 2018.

Gary Gold, Director of Rugby, said: “This is a significant statement of intent on all sides.  Jean-Luc, Dan and Garth have all made outstanding progress during the past few months, and there is not a franchise in Super Rugby or a club in Europe that would not want them in their squad.

“Their decision to remain in Durban, to be part of the new generation team that is fast emerging, will be greeted with delight by everybody associated with The Sharks.”
