English Premiership side the Sale Sharks have confirmed the signing of utility forward Cobus Wiese.
Wiese had been playing for Western Province and the Stormers, having signed for the Western Province Rugby Football Union in 2016. He made his Vodacom Super Rugby debut a year later, in 2017.
While there had been unofficial reports linking Wiese to Sale, the club officially confirmed the signing on Monday via its social media channels.
The 23-year-old Wiese, who can double up as a loose forward and lock, will join Faf de Klerk, the three Du Preez brothers, Rob, Dan and Jean-Luc, Jono Ross, Lood de Jager, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Akker van der Merwe and Coenie Oosthuizen on Sale’s payroll, making him the 10th South African to play for the club currently.
