    Three-year deal for Duane

    2015-06-17 08:07

    Cape Town - Springbok and Stormers No 8 Duane Vermeulen’s contract at French giants Toulon will be for three years.

    Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal earlier this week confirmed that they had signed the burly Stormers captain.

    It confirmed several media reports earlier in the year that linked Vermeulen with a move to the French Top 14 club.

    This follows after an earlier report that Vermeulen had rejected a contract offer from the South African Rugby Union (SARU).

    According to Netwerk24’s sources, Vermeulen would have been the highest earning Springbok had he accepted SARU’s offer.

    In the end however, SA Rugby, was unable to compete with the wealth of the European champions.
