Stormers looking for some permanent SpecMagic
TRANSFER NEWS: The Stormers have made another significant acquisition ahead of the next stage of the United Rugby Championship.
Springbok wing Rosko Specman will join up with the Stormers again ahead of the upcoming URC home matches against Zebre Parma and Cardiff at the Cape Town Stadium.
Having made his Stormers debut at the end of the Rainbow Cup, Specman will link up with the squad again on a short-term loan with a view to making a permanent move to Cape Town in the future.
Having made his Springbok debut against Georgia earlier this year, Specman has spent the last three months training with the national squad during the British and Irish Lions Series and the Rugby Championship.
The former BlitzBok star said that he is looking forward to linking up with the Stormers again and getting some game time at Stadium in the URC.
“I really enjoyed my short time in the Stormers environment earlier this year and can’t wait to get out on the pitch at Stadium, which is a stadium I already have some special memories of,” he said.
Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said that having a weapon like Specman in the backline will be a major boost.
“We all know what Rosko can offer when given just a little bit of space and given the strides we made in our attacking game on tour, we are looking forward to seeing how he will fit in.
“We are back on home soil and we have all seen Rosko light up Stadium for the BlitzBoks in the past so it is fantastic to have him on board and hopefully we will see more of him here in the future,” he said.
