The Sale Sharks have signed Sharks flyhalf Rob du Preez on a three-month deal.
The 25-year-old, who has earned one Test cap for the Boks, will arrive in England this week.
‘Rob comes with an outstanding CV and will be a fantastic injury replacement for AJ MacGinty. He arrives at the end of this week for three months,’ said Sale Sharks director of rugby Steve Diamond.
Du Preez will partner up with Sale scrumhalf Faf de Klerk, who is not available for the Springboks’ end-of-year tour.
