The Stormers have boosted their scrumhalf stocks for next week’s crucial Vodacom United Rugby Championship match in Wales against Scarlets.
Scrumhalf Stefan Ungerer will rejoin the Stormers squad next week, having recently signed a two-year deal.
Ungerer played the first five games of the URC season for the Stormers on loan and will return to Cape Town next week on a short-term loan, with his two-year contract starting in July.

He will be available for the final league game of the season against Scarlets and will then go back to Griquas before joining the Stormers squad on a full-time basis from July.
The hardworking halfback will be looking to build on some impressive early-season performances having now settled in Cape Town.
Ungerer says he is eager to start this new chapter of his career and contribute to the end of a campaign he started with the squad.
“It is great to be back and know that I will be settled here for the next two years.
“The team has been playing some incredible rugby and I can’t wait to get involved again,” he said.
Stormers head coach John Dobson feels Ungerer’s experience and steady hands are exactly what his team needs at this stage of the season and beyond.
“Stefan really impressed when he was here at the start of the season and it is fantastic to have him back in the fold.
“He has shown great variety in his game and can make an impact in any conditions, so we are all looking forward to seeing what he can do once he has settled here,” the boss said.
