WP prop to join Force

2013-06-25 09:12

Cape Town - Western Province prop Chris Heiberg has signed a deal to play for Australian Super Rugby franchise, the Force.

Heiberg, who played for WP in this year's Vodacom Cup, will join the Perth side on October 1. He was also on the Stormers' bench for their last two Super Rugby matches against the Reds and Kings, but didn't get game time.

His agent, Nina Rossouw of Union Sports Group, confirmed to Die Burger that the 28-year-old signed a deal which will keep him in Australia until the end of the 2016 season.

He will join fellow South Africans Wilhelm Steenkamp and Sias Ebersohn. Steenkamp signed a deal with the Force last week, while Ebersohn started playing for the Australians this season.

      Brutus your commentary is pathetic - who give you the right in any case to call another person a dud are you so perfect? It is really sad to see the commentary of the people is South Africa the way they run couches, players and franchises down it just shows how sick people has become.

      Ok oubaas se honne, why only commenting on my remark, what about the rubbish making remarks on bulls players, so buzz off old timer, go plAy with your doggie

      Melck - 2013-06-25 11:25

      Brutus - not only do you make pathetic comments but you can also not read or understand what you read - if you look at what I said is that it is sad to see the commentary of the people in South Africa - that means every person that make insulting comments towards players, couches and franchises. You no maybe my doggie has more style than you and if you can do what this old timer has done maybe then you will have more respect for yourself and other people.

      Melck you're arguing with an attention seeking child, dont waste the energy mate

      Brutus Mcgreggor - 2013-06-25 12:28

      Says the 23 year old snotkop

      Trav Griffie - 2013-06-26 09:02

      I agree with Izzi, Melk. Attention seeking children is correct. Don't waste your time.

    Well done my man! Wishing you all the best

    Brutus you clueless muppet! Chris was my PT and he is a machine with immense talent. Riddled by injury after school, but he will be a FORCE to be reckoned with at Super Rugby level now. He will be joined by 2 other Stormers players too if the rumors are true.

    Good for you mate and may the Force be with you. At least you will be coming to the best country in the world.
