SA’s forgotten flyhalf linked to Premiership club
TRANSFER TALK: Springbok and Sharks flyhalf Curwin Bosch could soon ply his trade at English Premiership side Bath.
According to the UK media outlet the Rugby Paper, Bath are close to securing the signature of 24-year-old Bosch.
Bath are in dire need of a solid flyhalf with Danny Cipriani out of contract at the end of the season, while 20-year-old Orlando Bailey is still just starting out his senior career.
Bosch, however, is still under contract with the Sharks until 2023, but the Rugby Paper reported that a clause in his contract could allow him to leave a year early if he provides enough notice.
The former Junior Springbok star has been struggling to cement himself as the Sharks No.10.
He was recently shifted to fullback at the Sharks with Boeta Chamberlain regarded as the team’s No.1 flyhalf option.
Once touted as a future star flyhalf for South Africa a few years ago, the 24-year-old’s Springbok career has also been a troubling feat with injuries and lack of game time nullifying his chances.
If the move to Bath should be successful, Bosch will join incoming coach Johann van Graan at the Premiership club.
