White adds to Saffa contingent

Bulls utility forward Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg and former Stormers hooker Tiaan Liebenberg are set to join Jake White's Montpellier in France.

According to SuperSport.com, the Bulls have agreed to release Janse van Rensburg, who can play lock or flank, for a transfer fee, while Liebenberg is set for his swansong after making a remarkable comeback from retirement earlier this year.

'He [Janse van Rensburg] approached us with the offer and we decided to say yes on the proviso of a transfer fee being paid,' Bulls high performance manager Xander Janse van Rensburg told SuperSport.com. 'At the moment we have some excellent young locks in the Super Rugby set-up and we back them all the way.'

White already has 11 South Africans in Montpellier's squad.
