The Sharks have announced the signing of barnstorming Lions loose forward Vincent Tshituka on a three-year deal.
The 23-year-old, who has been in red-hot form in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship, is the latest big-name recruit for the Durbanites after Springbok centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg was confirmed last week.
Born in the DRC, Tshituka has scooped an incredible four man-of-the-match awards in the URC, and is tipped for national honours once his eligibility issues are resolved.
He adds to a potent loose-forward stock at the Sharks, alongside Bok skipper Siya Kolisi and former SA U20s standout Phepsi Buthelezi, and also complements the hard edge of world-class enforcer Eben Etzebeth, set to arrive at Kings Park in July.
