Worms’s French move in doubt

The latest news on the unfolding Stade Francais financial crisis is that they look set to offload some of their big names in an attempt to balance the books – this as a group of investors may have come together at the 11th hour to save the club.

According to a report on Planet Rugby, Western Province lock Anton van Zyl, whose move to the Paris club was announced last week, looks likely to one of the players culled in an effort to save cash. Van Zyl, who struggled to find a spot in the Stormers’ second row this Super Rugby season, reportedly turned down a big-money offer to return to the Lions in order to sign with Stade; let’s hope that the Joburg option is still open to him given this latest development.

Sharks lock Gerhard Mostert has also appeared on the inbound transfer list for Stade Francais, despite not yet having signed the offer presented. The latest development must surely jeopardise that contract too and even if it isn’t summarily withdrawn from the French side, Mostert would surely need his head read if he considers moving to Paris now.

Good news for Sharks fans hoping to see Mossie stay in the black and white.

  • Anyone even thinking of moving to Stade is nuts. :razz: Mossie must most definitely stay with us now that Sykes is moving. We’re gonna need him big time.

  • @BoerSeun (Comment 5) : wtf is nanu? Sounds like a football player :)

    The news in Frans Steyn is that he’s contracted to Racing Metro… that’s not really a new development though, is it? :mrgreen:

  • @Jarson (AddicteD) (Comment 11) : I just can’t wait to get out of this “let’s buy XXXX” mindset every time we have a disappointing season.

    Let me say this slowly and clearly. WE HAVE ONE OF THE BEST SQUADS IN THE COMPETITION ALREADY. Why can’t our coaches get them to win consistently?

  • But he will be 36 this year.though I don’t think you are too old or too young-it all depends on if you can still play the game at the level you are tested on.
