Du Plessis brothers could leave Sharks for France

The Sharks Springbok brothers Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis are considering a move away from Super Rugby in France where they would play in the Top14.

The Springbok front rowers will meet with a French agent who is currently in Durban later this week and discuss “a number of offers made to them” according to Eyewitness News Sport.

“My contract finishes with the Sharks at the end of this season, there are some people coming to have a chat with us about clubs,” Bismarck told Eyewitness News Sport.

“We are seeing somebody Thursday.”

The Springbok duo are highly sought after and Eyewitness News reports that Top 14 giants Toulouse are the favourites to sign them.

While the pair could find lure of the Euro very tempting Sharks vice captain Bismarck says that he is still happy to stay in Durban if they make him an acceptable offer.

“There are a few clubs that are interested but I’m very happy at the Sharks. I’ve first got to first speak to the Sharks as its home for me, and I love the Sharks,” the injured hooker said.

The Sharks vice captain said that he understands that the Sharks are still interested in keeping them in Durban.

“They (the Sharks) did indicate that they are interested in extending our contracts, for me now personally I’ve just got to get back to rugby and back to playing before I can look at that.”

Bismarck is currently unavailable for Sharks selection as he is still recovering from a knee injury.
