Notshe commits to WP

    Cape Town - Stormers and Western Province loose forward Sikhumbuzo Notshe has opted to extend his stay in Cape Town for a further two seasons.

    According to Netwerk24, the promising 22-year-old has signed a deal to stay at WP until the end of the 2017 season.

    Notshe was a star for WP in the Vodacom Cup this year, while also impressing when he got opportunities for the Stormers in Super Rugby.

    "Sikhumbuzo is a top-notch player and several other unions were willing pay large amounts for his services. However, he made a career-oriented decision to stay with WP," Notshe's agent, Hilton Houghton said.

    "The fact that the Stormers finished top of the South African Conference in Super Rugby, as well as WP's status as Currie Cup champions, clearly show that this is the union setting the tone in South African rugby," continued Houghton.

    Notshe is expected to start in the No 6 jersey for the Stormers when they tackle the Sharks in a Super Rugby clash in Durban on Saturday (19:10 kick-off).

    The Stormers team will be named later on Thursday.
