Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Post by JP14 » Wed Nov 18, 2020 8:40 am

According to Neil Fissler of the Rugby Paper, Sale Sharks are after another du Preez, a JP du Preez from the Cheetahs who plays in the Second Row. As far as I know he's a namesake, not a relative of the du Preez brothers.
Formerly of Burbaaage (not Inkleh), now up north at uni

JB on the eggchasers podcast indicated the same rumour, he's normally spot on with Sale news.

Bath have signed Alex Gray (former Yorkshire Carnegie and Falcons player) who is coming from a dabble in NFL as a tight-end.

Chris Boyd signs a new deal with Saints till end of 2021/22.
So only a 1 season contract extension.

Rugby Paper & Neil Fissler (22/11/20) speculates that Sale are about to announce the signature of the 6ft 10in lock JP Du Preez from Cheetahs.
Would confirm Steve D's 'incoming' teaser from about a week ago.Apparently this signing is one of two.....

JP du Preez would make sense as injury dispensation for Lood de Jager.

I half thought Ruan Botha might end up there on a short term contract to cover. I believe he's still unattached having finished his contract with Kubota Spears.

By the time he's actually got a flight over here and done his 14 days isolation then Lavanini should be about back. I imagine he's off to Japan.

Very true. Personally, I'd have liked a more detailed breakdown of players health and fitness/anticipated date of return but thats not going to be the case judging by Mr Borthwick's recent interview so we will just have to wait and see when teams get announced!
