Sale Sharks signs another Springbok


Sale Sharks are continuing to bolster their team for next season with the signing of Springbok and Cell C Sharks prop Coenie Oosthuizen.

He follows the likes of Lood De Jager who signed also with the club last month.

Oostuizen can play both sides of the scrum and has made 129 appearances for the Cheetahs in all competitions before moving to Durban.

He made his test debut in June 2012 and earned 30 caps for the Boks.

He also has played so far 33 for the Cell C Sharks

Sale Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond was pleased to announce the signing this week, he said:

“Coenie joining us, along with Lood is a huge statement of where we want to be, he is 130kg, can play on both sides of the scrum and has a skillset away from the set piece that is unique for a prop of his size. He also has considerable experience playing with Akker Van Der Merwe at the Sharks so I think he will fit in perfectly at Sale. We look forward to welcoming him to Manchester later in the year ahead of the 19/20 Gallagher Premiership.”

  1. Good for Coenie. Watched him on weekend, and he is not yet on the same level as before his injury, but I would still go with him to WC before the Bull wannabees that were destroyed.
