Former Vodacom Bulls flank and 2012 U20 Championship-winner Shaun Adendorff is reportedly in talks for a move to the Northampton Saints.
A report in The Rugby Paper has linked Adendorff with a move to the Premiership.
According to the report, the 27-year-old is in ‘advanced talks’ with the Saints as his deal with French ProD2 side Aurillac is set to expire at the end of this month.
Adendorff starred for the Junior Springboks in 2012 and was a key part of their charge towards their first-ever title – memorably scoring a brace in the must-win pool stage match against England. His efforts earned him nomination as Junior World Player of the Year, but he was edged out by teammate Jan Serfontein.
The loose forward, who also played on the sevens circuit for the Blitzboks, had two separate stints with the Bulls before moving to France in 2018.
