    Cape Town - English club Sale Sharks look set to land the signatures of all three Du Preez brothers - Robert, Jean-Luc and Dan. 

    The club has already announced the signing of flyhalf Rob du Preez on a three-year deal, but according to a report in Afrikaans newspaper Rapport on Sunday, loose forwards Dan and Jean-Luc will also be making the move up north to join their older brother. 

    The article adds that Dan and Jean-Luc are still contracted to play another season on Super Rugby in 2020, and that they will begin full-time, two-year deals following the completion of that tournament. 

    They could still turn out for Sale in between the 2019 and 2020 Super Rugby tournaments, however.

    Sale also announced the signing of Sharks hooker Akker van der Merwe last week, while Springbok prop Steven Kitshoff is heavily linked to the club. 

    The Sharks, meanwhile, lost their first game of the 2019 Super Rugby season in Durban on Saturday when they went down 16-11 to the Stormers.
