Cape Town - The Leopards may have been relegated to the lower echelons of South African rugby, but they have still managed to attract the services of a Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok.

Leopards coach Leon Boshoff confirmed to the Rugby365 website that 33-year-old Bok flyhalf André Pretorius has returned from France and started training with the men from Potchefstroom.

With the country's premier domestic competition, the Currie Cup, having been reduced to a six-team tournament for 2012, the Leopards and Pumas have both been relegated to the First Division.

However, Pretorius has joined two of his former Lions team-mates -  Boshoff, now head coach, and his assistant Jorrie Muller - in Potchefstroom.

Pretorius could make his Leopards debut against his former Lions team-mates in a Vodacom Cup match in March.
