Former Sharks, Bulls and Counties Manakau looseforward/lock Daniel Adongo has joined the Kings on loan from the Leopards for the Super rugby season. Former Lions hooker Edgar Marutlulle has also joined the Kings on loan from the Leopards.
The Kings are the latest stop in a rugby journey for the big Kenyan which has promised much but seems to have fallen short of the immense hype that his speed and bulk have produced.
Adonga, a Sharks academy graduate, joined the Bulls this time last year with a lot of fanfare. The Bulls were supposedly going to turn this physical beast into a rugby super star and Springbok. Despite scoring a hat trick on his debut, Adongo’s Bulls career did not quite take off as planned and he was eventually released from his contract with them and allowed to join Tana Umaga’s Counties Manakau side for the ITM Cup.
The latest news on Adongo (courtesy of Michael Green from Die Burger) is that he is back in the country and contracted to the Leopards from whom he will be loaned to the Kings for Super rugby duty.
On behalf of Sharksworld I would like to wish Daniel all the best on his new adventure in the Eastern Cape.Tweet
