VIDEO: Sharks' 'Kolbe' heads for the exit door

TRANSFER NEWS: The Sharks’ wing Thaakir Abrahams will join Lyon next season, the French club said on Monday.


The 24-year-old, who can also play at fullback, has signed a two-year contract with the Top 14 side.

He will link up with his new club on July 1.

The wing has scored four tries in the United Rugby Championship this season and played for the Baby Boks at the 2019 World Championships.

Abrahams, who has been compared to Cheslin Kolbe due to his quick feet, will line up outside Fiji centre Semi Radradra at Stade de Gerland with the midfielder arriving from Bristol after this year’s Rugby World Cup.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Springbok prop Thomas du Toit will join Premiership club Bath.

However, the Durban franchise managed to seal a deal with Vincent Koch as an ideal replacement.
