Stormers prop joins Sharks
TRANSFER NEWS: The Sharks have bolstered their front-row stocks with a Stormer.
On Friday, the Durban franchise announced that they have signed prop Dian Bleuler.
Bleuler is a former South Africa Under-20 player and he made his debut for the Stormers against the British and Irish Lions earlier this year.
The 22-year-old also represented Western Province in the Currie Cup this year.
“Welcoming our newest prop, Dian Bleuler, to the Sharks family,” the Sharks wrote on their social media pages.
The Sharks have signed a number of players this year since MVM Holdings, an international investment consortium spearheaded by Marco Masotti, purchased a 51 percent majority stake in the franchise.
