Cape Town - Springbok flank Marcell Coetzee’s agent has refuted a report linking the player with a move to the Stormers and Western Province.
This comes after Die Son newspaper reported on Tuesday that Coetzee, who is currently on the books of Irish club Ulster, will head for Cape Town next year.
Former Springbok prop Toks van der Linde apparently told the Afrikaans newspaper's reporter that Coetzee would be joining the Cape franchise.
Coetzee is currently sidelined with a knee injury, but according to James Adams - who represents In Touch Sports - there is no truth to the report and that Coetzee remains contracted to Ulster until June 2019.
Adams took to Twitter to refute the claim:
The 26-year-old Coetzee currently boasts 28 Test caps and therefore cannot represent the Springboks outside a Rugby World Cup year.
According to a new SA Rugby legislation, only overseas-based Springboks with 30 or more Test caps can be selected for the national side outside of a World Cup year.
