Nuus24 reported that the chances are good for the return of JJ Engelbrecht to WP Rugby. After almost six years since Engelbrecht and Sadie left WP Rugby for the Blue Bulls he wants to return back to Cape Town.
JJ was a player that had plenty of potential but was moved from wing to the midfield by the Blue Bulls which also saw him earning his Springbok colors.
In hindsight he should have maybe stayed on the wing which saw him as a great attacker at Western Province and many expected much from the then young wing.
In the midfield JJ never had the best of defence which saw him lost his Springbok spot and later also his starting spot at the Bulls. JJ moved to Japan to play club rugby for Toyota Industries Shuttles.
It seemes WP Rugby is making a habit in buying players that is sometimes past their sell by date.
His return to WP will come with mixed feelings as there are already noises that Sergeal Petersen and Raymond Rhule on their way is to Cape Town.
Time will tell if this will actually happen
