More Stormers eyeing careers abroad?

    Cape Town - Following reports linking Cheslin Kolbe with a move to France, more Stormers players are rumoured to be considering moves abroad.

    French website,, reported earlier this week that Toulouse were interested in signing the fullback after the conclusion of next year’s Super Rugby competition.

    And according to Kwese Sports, centre Huw Jones, prop Oliver Kebble, hooker Scarra Ntubeni and loose forwards Rynhardt Elstadt and Nizaam Carr are also considering leaving the beleaguered franchise after next year’s Super Rugby competition.

    The moves would hardly be surprising, with WP Rugby in financial strife, having applied for liquidation.

    Kolbe’s agent, Dane Galley, meanwhile confirmed to Netwerk24 that his player’s contract with WP expires at the end of the 2017 season.

    Galley said there were several clubs interested in the services of the fleet-footed Kolbe, but did not mention a specific club.

    Kolbe, 23, was influential for the Stormers in Super Rugby this year and many thought that he had done enough to force his way into the Springbok set-up.

    But national coach Allister Coetzee wasn't interested, and has instead utilised Willie le Roux, Johan Goosen and Pat Lambie in the No 15 jersey.

    Kolbe was also a member of the South African Sevens side that won a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics.
