The Southern Kings have confirmed the signing of Sharks scrumhalf Cameron Wright on a two-year deal.
The 26-year-old scrumhalf will officially join the Kings on 1 September 2020, with his contract running until 2022.
Wright has spent most of his career plying his trade at the Sharks, who he represented from 2014 until 2020, with a two-year stint (2015-17) at French club Montpellier sandwiched in between.
‘We are excited to have Cameron Wright joining us,’ Kings backline coach Vuyo Zangqa said in a statement.
‘We have been looking for a quality No 9, so we are very excited that he will be joining our group to become part of the Kings family. He is a very good player and we are excited and looking forward to his contribution to the side.
‘What we have been looking for is an experienced halfback after having only had Stefan Ungerer in the 2019-20 season as the only experienced No 9 available to us. Stefan has made a great contribution, and now having someone with good experience behind them, like Cameron, also adding to our pool will take us to a higher level.
‘Cameron will bring with him not only the experience, but quality skills like kicking and his footwork. We needed to have at least two quality scrumhalves whom the younger players like Josh Allderman and Gavin Mills will get to learn so much from, and they can take the baton from them.’
