Springbok hooker Schalk Brits has been linked with a return to the Stormers.
Brits was set to head into retirement after Saracens claimed the English Premiership title earlier this year, but the veteran hooker then received a surprise call-up by Bok coach Rassie Erasmus.
With the hope of now pushing through to next year’s World Cup, Netwerk24 reports that Brits will join the Stormers ahead of the 2019 Super Rugby season.
Although a move to the Bulls had appeared to be on the cards, the signs now suggest that the 37-year-old will instead be heading back to the Cape.
