Sharks sign Springbok fullback Willie le Roux

Cheetahs and Springbok fullback Willie Le Roux has agreed to join Durban based Super Rugby franchise the Sharks from the 2016 Super Rugby season.

The twenty-five-cap Springbok boasts an impressive try-scoring strike rate with seven touch-downs in Test matches and a notable win record of 76% at international level.

Confirming his signing, The Sharks CEO John Smit said,”Willie is an excellent acquisition for the Sharks.”

“He is a game-breaker who has shown on numerous occasions his class and ability to turn defence into attack. He will certainly strengthen and add great value to our backline.

“We are delighted that he has accepted our offer to ply his trade in Durban and look forward to welcoming him to The Sharks family.”
