South African rugby’s worst kept secret was confirmed on Monday.

After numerous premature reports, Western Province Rugby on Monday confirmed that Springbok backs Elton Jantjies and Jaco Taute will join the Stormers on loan for the 2013 Super Rugby season.

The influential backs, both of whom will spend the 2013 Super Rugby season in Cape Town on loan from the Golden Lions, became Test Springboks this year after being part of the 2011 Currie Cup-winning Lions team.

Stormers head coach Allister Coetzee said: "We're very excited about having Elton and Jaco in Cape Town for next year's Super Rugby tournament.

"They're both quality players and we look forward to getting them involved here - both on and off the field - and seeing how they fit into the Stormers culture."

Taute, 21, tips the scales at 95 kilograms and will add depth in virtually every backline position. He made his Test debut at centre in the Rugby Championship last month, but has featured mainly at fullback at Super Rugby level.

Flyhalf Jantjies, 22, weighs 88 kilograms and scored over 200 points in Super Rugby and Currie Cup rugby combined this year. Like Taute, he has played in two Tests for South Africa.

The Stormers have also snapped up Springbok prop Patric Cilliers and utility forward Michael Rhodes from the Lions ahead of the 2013 season.
