    De Allende to join Coetzee in Japan?

    2015-06-04 11:12

    Cape Town - Stormers and Springbok centre Damian de Allende will also play rugby in Japan later this year, Netwerk24 reports.

    Good news for Stormers fans though is that the 23-year-old will return to play Super Rugby for the Cape franchise next year - as is the case with many South African Super Rugby players plying their trade in Japan.

    It’s still unsure what team De Allende would be joining but the possibility exists that he could join Stormers coach Allister Coetzee at the Kobe Kobelco Steelers.

    Coetzee will leave the Stormers after this year’s Super Rugby competition to further his coaching career at the Steelers.

    De Allende played three Tests for the Springboks last year and is expected to form part of Heyneke Meyer's plans for the Rugby World Cup.
