The Du Preez twins have signed a deal with Sale Sharks for the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership but it is only a loan deal.
They will be back for the Cell C Sharks 2020 Super Rugby campaign.
Jean-Luc and Daniel will join their brother Robert who has signed with the club.
Both twins made their first-team debuts for the Cell-C Sharks in 2015 and have since gone on to make over sixty appearances each for the Durban based franchise.
Sale Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond was especially pleased to secure the services of both twins for the 2019/20 season and believes they will have an instant impact within the Gallagher Premiership, he said:
“I am delighted to secure the services of both Jean-Luc and Daniel ahead of the 19/20 Gallagher Premiership, Both lads are huge men with a commanding physical presence and to be able to add two world class internationals to our forward pack for next year is a huge boost for the club. I look forward to welcoming both twins to Carrington later in the year.”
Jean-Luc and Daniel admitted they couldn’t wait to return to the UK along with brother Rob, he added:
“I’m really excited and honoured to announce that I will be joining Sale Sharks again. I really enjoyed my short stint with the club late last year, so much so that I have decided to sign another short-term contract in the UK. The club has set really high standards and the squad that has been built is really exciting and signals the clubs intent within the Gallagher Premiership. In the meantime, I am fully committed to the Cell-C Sharks and want to finish the season on a high before I head over to the UK for the winter.”
Twin Brother Dan added: “I’ve heard some really good things about the club from Rob and Jean-Luc and can’t wait to link up with Sale in the winter and play some rugby in the Gallagher Premiership with my brothers. I’m excited about the new challenge ahead in Manchester and can’t wait to test myself in one of the toughest leagues in the world.”
