Port Elizabeth - The Eastern Province Kings have signed former Springbok and Sharks player, Shaun Sowerby, as their new forwards coach.

EP Rugby CEO, Charl Crous, confirmed the appointment on Monday, saying Sowerby, who has made a name for himself playing at No 8, would be joining the Currie Cup coaching team in May.

“We have a young coaching group that we are grooming and putting together for the long haul, ahead of our re-entry into Super Rugby,” he said.

“The idea was to get young, dynamic coaches - such as Carlos Spencer who joined us last year, Michael Horak who joins us from tomorrow (Tuesday), and now Shaun Sowerby - so that this coaching unit can grow together and take us forward in the years to come,” he said.

Sowerby, who played a single Test for the Springboks in 2002, will turn 36 in July.

He captained the Sharks in 2003 before moving to France in 2004 when he joined Stade Français.

Sowerby has also had a stint at Toulouse and currently plies his trade for Grenoble, where he announced his intent to retire as a player and take up coaching, earlier this year.
