South Africa Props Set For Top 14 Deals
Wilco Louw Signs for Toulon
25 year old Stormers Prop Wilco Louw has signed a short term deal with Top 14 side Toulon. The 13 Cap Prop will provide cover during the World Cup on a deal that lasts until November.
Louw is a talented player and strong scrummager but at only 25 he has plenty of time to amass more Springbok Caps. His most recent Cap came against Argentina in the recent Rugby Championship campaign.
Lizo Gqoboka Set For Montpellier Move
Bulls Prop Lizo Gqoboka looks set for a move to Top 14 side Montpellier. The French side already boast a number of South Africans including the Du Plessis Brothers. Jannie Du Plessis recently re-signed for the club on a World Cup short term deal but it looks like they still feel they need more cover in the Prop department.
29 year old Gqoboka had a fantastic season for theBulls and will feel unlucky to have missed out on selection for the World Cup. His first Springbok Cap came against Australia in the recent Rugby Championship tournament but it seems that Head Coach Rassie Erasmus decided to go with more tried and tested players .
