Duvenage heading back to the Cape?

    Cape Town - Former Stormers scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenage may re-join his former team later this year.

    According to Netwerk24, the 28-year-old is likely to return to Cape Town to play for Western Province in the Currie Cup Premier Division later this year, before turning out for the Stormers in 2017.

    Duvenage currently plays for French club Perpignan, who he joined from the Stormers in 2013.

    He represented Western Province and the Stormers between 2008 and 2013, having previously played for Boland.

    Current Stormers scrumhalf incumbent Nic Groom earlier this month indicated that he will leave after Super Rugby to join Northampton Saints in England.

    Groom, Louis Schreuder, Godlen Masimla and the injured Jano Vermaak are current senior scrumhalves at the union.

    When the Stormers confirmed Groom’s intended departure, director of rugby Gert Smal hinted that they may be on the lookout for a new scrumhalf.

    "We would like to wish Nic all the best for his future, he has been a stalwart at Newlands and we appreciate the contribution he has made here both on and off the field. We will keep a close eye on the scrumhalves we have in the system, and if necessary we will look at recruiting another scrumhalf," Smal said at the time.
