Du Preezs, April recommit to Sharks

Talented twins Dan and Jean-Luc du Preez, as well as flyhalf Garth April, have signed contract extensions to remain at the Sharks until the end of 2018.

The Sharks confirmed on Thursday that the trio had put pen to paper and committed their immediate future to the Sharks.

'This is a significant statement of intent on all sides,' Sharks director of rugby Gary Gold commented. 'Jean-Luc, Dan and Garth have all made outstanding progress during the past few months, and there is not a franchise in Super Rugby or a club in Europe that would not want them in their squad.

'Their decision to remain in Durban, to be part of the new generation team that is fast emerging, will be greeted with delight by everybody associated with the Sharks.'
