    Durban - The Sharks have confirmed the signing of Western Province and Stormers wing Leolin Zas from the start of the 2018 Super Rugby season. 

    The franchise confirmed the news via their official Twitter page on Monday. 

    It is the latest in a string of signings from the Durban-based franchise after they last week confirmed the signings of flyhalf Robert du Preez and Cheetahs wing Makazole Mapimpi

    Still just 22-years-old, Zas represented SA U-20 in 2015 and he played for South Africa 'A' last year. 

    2017 has been a frustrating year for Zas, who broke his leg at the start of the year and has been out ever since. 

    While he has been used primarily as a wing at Western province and the Stormers, Zas also provides an option at fullback. 

    The Sharks will start their 2018 Super Rugby season with a trip to Ellis Park to take on the Lions, who have finished runners-up in the last two editions of the tournament, in Johannesburg on February 17.
