Cape Town - Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth has decided to turn down any offers to play in the Premiership after South Africa's November tour.

The Stormers lock had been linked to Saracens and more recently Bristol for a short stint, but Etzebeth, who suffered a concussion in the Test against England, has now decided to rather use the opportunity to rest.

"I can confirm Eben will not be accepting any offers," his agent Hilton Houghton told Netwerk24.

"He has decided to rather rest and have a good pre-season with the Stormers with an eye on next year's Super Rugby competition.

Reports suggested Etzebeth could have earned as much as £40 000 (R700 000) per game at Bristol.
