Sunwolves bring in two Springboks for 2020 season
SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: The Sunwolves have added six new players to their squad for the 2020 Super Rugby season.
The newcomers include Springboks Rudy Paige and JJ Engelbrecht.
Both players joined French club Clermont earlier this year on short-term contracts as cover during the World Cup. Engelbrecht joined from the Stormers, while Paige joined from the Cheetahs.
The Sunwolves also confirmed that Bulls prop Conraad van Vuuren will also be playing for them in 2020.
The trio will join fellow South African Garth April, who was one of 15 players named in the Sunwolves’ squad in November.
The other noteworthy selection back in November was discarded England international Ben Te’o, a New Zealand-born Rugby League convert – who also featured in two matches for the British and Irish Lions, apart from 18 Tests for England.
Veteran Georgian hooker Jaba Bregvadze will also feature for the Sunwolves in 2020.
