A Springbok legend in his own right, JP Pietersen returned to the Cell C Sharks last year following three seasons abroad with the Leicester Tigers and Toulon.

Pietersen’s illustrious career spans 137 Super Rugby caps and 70 Springbok tests, with the pinnacle being the 2007 season when he was the top try-scorer in Super 14 with a tally of 12 tries and starred in South Africa’s triumphant RWC campaign in France.
