Grant wants Stormers spot
Cape Town - Flyhalf Peter Grant
is eager to regain the Stormers No 10 jersey for next year's Super Rugby competition.
According to Die Burger's website
, Grant will continue playing Super Rugby for the Cape franchise next season. He confirmed that negotiations regarding a new contract are at an advanced stage.
Grant missed most of this year's competition after injuring his ankle against the Chiefs on March 9. But he said he's eager to hit back next season and reclaim the No 10 jersey.
"It wasn't nice to sit on the sidelines this year and I am keen to make up for it next year. Western Province have always treated me well and I did the same. I think I was a good investment for them over the years," said the 28-year-old.
Grant is also excited by the promise shown by young flyhalf Gary van Aswegen and said the competition between them would be beneficial for the team.
"It's important to have depth at flyhalf. Gary is starting to mature nicely. By the time I return (from Japan) he will hopefully have gained more experience and be highly rated as a flyhalf."
Grant said it's important that a flyhalf plays one full season to gain confidence.
"I had a good season (2012) and received high praise from Jean de Villiers (Stormers captain). I was consistent over a few seasons.
"It's nice to know some people at least missed me!"
