Star Stormers hooker to join Sharks?

World Cup-winning Springbok hooker Bongi Mbonambi has been linked with a move from the Stormers to the Sharks.

According to a piece in the Rapport, Mbonambi – whose future at the Cape Town franchise has been on unsteady ground for some time – looks set to follow Siya Kolisi from the west coast to the east.


However, earlier this week, Western Province Professional Rugby chairperson Ebrahim Rasool indicated that they were keen to re-sign Mbonambi.

“The coach has an open mandate to fight for every player of quality that has come through the ranks of Western Province and the Stormers,” Rasool said.

“We proved that with Siya. We made an unprecedented offer to him but there were other forces at work. We will do that with Bongi, Pieter-Steph [du Toit] and anyone who is even ambiguous about whether they want to be with us or not.”
