    Stormers send flyhalf SOS to Whitehead

    Cape Town - The Stormers have secured a loan deal with Griquas flyhalf George Whitehead.

    READ: Stormers secure services of Bulls duo

    WP Rugby confirmed the agreement to Netwerk24 on Wednesday after the player joined the Stormers’ pre-season training squad.

    The Cape franchise’s flyhalf stocks look decidedly thin following the departure of Robert du Preez to the Sharks.

    It’s uncertain when Jean-Luc du Plessis, who underwent a hip operation last year, will regain full fitness which leaves only Damian Willemse and Joshua Stander as flyhalves in the squad.

    The 24-year-old Stander, who had represented the Bulls since 2013, was signed late last year.

    Whitehead, 28, has spent time at the Cheetahs, Kings and Griffons before joining Griquas in 2017.

    The Stormers open their 2018 Super Rugby campaign at home against the Jaguares on Saturday, February 17.
