Kings No.9 to fill Reinach's boots at Sharks
SUPER RUGBY SPOTLIGHT: Kings scrumhalf Louis Schreuder will join the Sharks after signing a two-year contract with the franchise.
The Sharks have not only accumulated the services of Schreuder, but Sharks head coach Robert du Preez has handed two-year-contacts to Cameron Wright and Tyler Paul, respectively.
"Former Stormers and now Kings scrumhalf, Louis Schreuder brings with him a wealth of experience and with the loss of Cobus Reinach to Northampton, Schroeder together with the Michael Claassens will shepherd the scrumhalf responsibilities and provide the necessary mentorship and guidance to our emerging scrumhalves at the franchise," said du Preez.
Another scrumhalf who will be joining Schreuder in Durban is KwaZulu-Natal-born Cameron Wright, who is no stranger to the Sharks after spending his junior years with our team.
"After a short stint in France, which has aided his personal development, he makes a welcome return home. Cameron understands our unique culture and team values and everyone is excited to have him back home,"
Voted Kings Under-19 player of the year in 2013, lock or flank Tyler Paul, 22-years-old, is another player who has shone this season.
"His work ethic and drive makes him a perfect fit for our team and we are confident that his move to Durban will prove to be beneficial for both the player’s personal development and for our team.
"Our core emphasis is to retain homegrown talent and a lot of effort has been placed on signing the best junior players in our province, some of which we have already announced.
"With the acquisition of these juniors, it is also important to have experience in the mix and due consideration was given to signing players that will fit into the unique culture we have here at The Sharks and the vision we are building towards. These three players fit that mould and we look forward to them joining our family," concluded du Preez.
