WP in talks with Du Toit

    2015-06-22 12:30

    Cape Town - Western Province Director of Rugby Gert Smal has confirmed their interest in signing Springbok lock Pieter-Steph du Toit from the Sharks.

    Smal confirmed to EWN Sport that a discussion between him and Du Toit had taken place.

    Smal said the Sharks had agreed to the discussion taking place.

    The WP boss said the discussion went well and he now hopes Du Toit “makes the right decision to come to Cape Town.”

    Du Toit, 22, signed a two-year contract extension at the Sharks in July 2013 which runs until June 30 this year.

    Du Toit recently indicated that he would like to repay the faith the Sharks had shown him through his periods sidelined with injuries, but he was schooled in the Western Cape and his family lives there, which makes a move back to the region an appealing one.

    Du Toit played two Tests for the Boks in 2013, but has been plagues by knee injuries in recent years.
