Cape Town - Springbok wing Cornal Hendricks has reportedly signed a two-year deal with Western Province.
It is believed that the Bulls were also interested in signing the 27-year-old speedster, but it appears the Cape side have won the race to sign Hendricks from the Cheetahs.
According to widespread media reports, Hendricks will join his new team after the conclusion of this year's Rugby World Cup.
However, when contacted by Sport24, Western Province Communications Manager, Howard Kahn, couldn’t confirm the deal.
"For all signings and news we will issue a statement as and when a signing is official," Kahn said.
Hendricks, who previously also represented Boland and the Blitzboks, has played 11 Tests for the Springboks since making his debut against Wales in Durban last year.
