    Stormers prop linked to Scottish club

    Cape Town - The Stormers look set to lose the services of prop Oli Kebble, who is reportedly heading for Scotland later this year.

    According to BBC Sport, the 24-year-old is set to sign a deal with Glasgow Warriors.

    He is expected to leave the Western Province Rugby Union at the end of the South African season.

    Kebble has seemingly been courted by Scottish Rugby, who have reportedly monitored the player for several years.

    As he is not tied to the Springboks, Kebble could become eligible to represent Scotland after three years' residency.

    This follows on the announcement earlier this week that Stormers centre Huw Jones will leave Newlands at the end of 2017 to join Glasgow on a two-year deal.

    Jones, who was born in Edinburgh, made his Scotland debut against Japan in 2016 and has since won four Test caps.

    In recent times, several South Africans have opted to ply their trade in Scotland, with former Lions No 8 Josh Strauss and ex-Cheetahs prop WP Nel earning Test caps for their adopted country.

    Former Southern Kings loose forward Cornell du Preez has also been included in Scotland squads, but has yet to make his Test debut.
