Following further injuries to the Stormers, and the confirmation that four of their loose forwards will only be back in July, the Stormers have apparently approached Ernst Joubert to return to South Africa and add experience to the Cape Town team’s loose trio.
News24.com reports that the former Lions eighthman, who currently plays for Saracens, has been approached and is on his way to Cape Town, and could even make his way onto the training field as early as today.
The Stormers already have a European-based player in their midst, with Jebb Sinclair getting the call last week and playing three quarters of the game against the Cheetahs last weekend, following the injury to Nizaam Carr. Sinclair was expected to start at the back of the scrum, with Vodacom Cup stars Don Armand and Nick Fenton-Wells fighting it out for the bench spot, but with Joubert in the mix, we will have to wait for the team announcement.
