Stormers target Pumas lock
- 18 Sep 2013
The Stormers are looking to sign Argentina lock Manuel Carizza for next year's Super Rugby tournament.
According to Die Burger, the franchise is busy negotiating a deal with the 29-year-old.
The 2.02m, 118kg lock has played 36 Tests for Argentina and three so far in this year's Rugby Championship. He has also represented French club, Biarritz, on 113 occasions.
The Stormers are looking to bolster their second-row stocks following the departure of Andries Bekker to Japan.

Burger’s big impact
Schalk Burger still has a role to play for the Boks, as a starter or substitute, writes JON CARDINELLI.
Soaring to new heights
From the schoolboy too big to lift in the lineouts, Brodie Retallick has become close to the complete lock for the All Blacks, writes MARC HINTON.
Too soon for Boks to panic
Results and form mean very little in terms of the World Cup, it’s all about who gets it right in the tournament, writes MARK KEOHANE.
