Cape Town - Schooled at Grey College in Port Elizabeth, Wesley Dunlop will return to the Eastern Cape where he also represented Eastern Province at age-group level.

According to the worldartists website, Dunlop, 25, enrolled in the Sharks Academy in 2007 and gained experience in both the Under-21 and Sharks XV sides.

In 2010 Dunlop enjoyed a fantastic season with the College Rovers, culminating in the club winning their first ever Club Nationals trophy.

Dunlop moved to the Blue Bulls in 2011 and was a key player for Tuks in the Varsity Cup competition, winning the Player of the Tournament in 2012.

Dunlop's successful Varsity Cup campaign coupled with his outstanding performances for the Blue Bulls in the 2012 Vodacom Cup competition, caught the attention of EP Kings coach Alan Solomons who wasted no time in signing the ace flyhalf, with a view to playing in next year's Super Rugby tournament.

Dunlop's younger brother, Cameron, 22, will remain in Pretoria with Tukkies.
