Another EP Kings player is expected to feature in the Stormers 2014 Super Rugby squad, as EP Rugby CEO, Charl Crous confirmed that Siviwe Soyizwapi will join the Stormers.
Soyizwapi, better known as Shakes to his team mates, left for Cape Town on Sunday and will provide cover at wing and fullback, for the injured Jaco Taute and Cheslin Kolbe.
Shakes made his Super Rugby debut against the Brumbies last year when he replaced Hadleigh Parks. He made a total of six appearances for the Southern Kings, three in the starting line-up and three as a substitute.
Crous said he had received the request to loan Soyizwapi to the Stormers for their Super Rugby season, following the youngster’s sterling performance against the Cape Town based Super Rugby side during their warm up match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on the 7th of February.
“We wish Shakes everything of the best and know that he will be a great asset to the Stormers,” he said.
Shakes will be joining fellow EP Kings player Scott van Breda, that has been training with the Stormers squad since the start of the 2014 pre-season.Tweet
