The cash-strapped Boland Rugby Union is set to lose several stars in the next couple of weeks.
With the union already admitted their is no money for contracts for 2010, agents are making calls all around South Africa in an attempt to move their players to greener pastures.
Marnus Hugo, one of South Africa's most improved scrumhalves, has signed a one year contract with Griquas.
"Yes, the contract is for a year, but I have the option to renew. I'm looking forward to the challenge," Hugo said.
Loosehead prop Janro van Niekerk also confirmed that his agent is trying to get him into another union.
Asked if the rumours were true that he might join the Golden Lions, Van Niekerk said: "That is one of the options. "
"However, looking overseas is another."
