Durban - The Sharks have announced that talented young prop, Thomas du Toit, has committed his immediate future to the union by signing a three-year contract extension.

On the back of this signing, Du Toit will spend three-months with Irish club Munster on a loan agreement.

He will re-join the Sharks Super Rugby training squad in January 2017.

Commenting on Du Toit’s stint with Munster, Currie Cup head coach Robert du Preez said on the team’s official website: “We have no doubt that this opportunity will allow Thomas to gain valuable experience and some important game-time under his belt, ahead of the start of the 2017 Super Rugby tournament.

“The European Professional Club Rugby tournament is a competition where scrummaging is at the forefront, and this will add to his growth and development as a player.”
