Brumbies reel in Hoffmann
Cape Town - South African scrumhalf, Conrad Hoffmann, will join compatriot Lionel Cronjé at Australian Super Rugby franchise, the Brumbies.
Sport24 reported on Monday
that Golden Lions utility back Cronjé will join the Canberra-based side ahead of next year's Super Rugby competition.
And according to the Volksblad website
, Hoffmann will join Cronjé in the Australian capital. Both have signed contracts until the end of the 2015 season.
The players' agent, BC du Plessis, said the duo will join the Brumbies on November 1 this year. They would become eligible to play for Australia in three years' time.
Hoffmann, 25, was a regular in the Stormers and WP squads a few seasons back before joining the Sharks at the end of 2010.
However, injuries hampered his progress, which saw him return to Cape Town earlier this year to play for local club Hamiltons.
