Yet another Highlanders player packs for Japan

    2018-06-04 11:11

    Cape Town - The Manukata Sanix Blues have announced two key signings for the 2018 season, one of which is Highlanders and Maori All Blacks loose forward Dan Pryor.

    According to the Rugby Pass website, the Japanese Top League side have also signed South African prop John-Roy Jenkinson, who has previously featured for the Bulls in Super Rugby and South Africa at U20 level.

    The side also announced the departure of former Springboks lock Jacques Potgieter.

    Pryor - who is yet to make an appearance this season - joins fellow Highlanders and Maori All Blacks loose forward Elliot Dixon in heading to Japan after it was announced last month that Dixon had signed with the Ricoh Black Rams.

    Another two Highlanders, Richard Buckman and Tom Franklin are also set to move to Japan, having announced their signing with the Wayne Smith-led Kobe Steelers in April.
