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 made massive contribution
Schalk Burger’s colossal performance against England was as much a lesson to South African supporters as it was the completion of an incredible rugby comeback, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.
Brutal Boks bashed England
England, despite a three-point scoreline, were never in this Test. Kudos the bruising Boks, writes MARK KEOHANE at Twickenham.
Goosen a potent prospect at 15
The decision to play Johan Goosen at fullback against Italy this Saturday will benefit the Springboks in the long-term, writes JON CARDINELLI in Padova.
