Former Stormer to play Super Rugby for the Waratahs

Veteran Wales and former Stormers centre Jamie Roberts is set to make a return to Super Rugby for Australian side the Waratahs this season.

Roberts had his first taste of Super Rugby in early 2020 with the Stormers, where he played six games before the season was called off due to a national lockdown.

The 35-year-old has now been recruited by the Waratahs as injury cover after young centre Joey Walton was ruled out for the season due to a knee injury.

Roberts, who played his last game for Wales in 2017, has 94 Test caps to his name and has played three Tests for the British & Irish Lions.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, he has an Australian wife and the Roberts family is expecting their second child.

The Waratahs open their season against new Super Rugby side the Fijian Drua in a Friday night clash on 18 February.
