The Sharks confirmed on Friday that tighthead prop Wiehahn Herbst will leave Durban at the end of the current Super Rugby season.
Herbst, who first played for the Sharks at Super Rugby level in 2009 after serving his apprenticeship in the junior ranks, will join Irish club side Ulster, following a well-trodden path laid out by Sharks stars including Johann Muller, BJ Botha, Ruan Pienaar and Stefan Terblanche.
Herbst – affectionately known as Wors – has signed on for three years in what he says is a “great opportunity to develop [his] career and to take it to the next level”. Currently queued behind Boks in Jannie du Plessis and Lourens Adriaanse, he looks unlikely to add significantly to his tally of 37 Super Rugby appearance for the Sharks this season.
We’d like to wish Wors and new wife Denise all the best for this next chapter. We’ll miss you dearly.Tweet
