Sharks to sign Snyman

Andre Snyman could join the Sharks when he returns to South Africa from his stint with the Leeds Tykes.

Sharks CEO Brian van Zyl confirmed that Snyman could be on his way back to Durban, after Bok coach Jake White offered the centre/wing a contract ahead of the World Cup.

Snyman has been in excellent form, playing on the wing, in a weak Leeds team in the English Premiership this season and White believes the Springboks need his experience at the World Cup in France next year.

“Yes, SA Rugby have asked us if we can accommodate Andre,” Van Zyl told The Witness. “We have told them that we would definitely be interested in having him but we certainly haven’t committed ourselves as yet.”

Snyman’s mother lives in Umhlanga and he is reportedly keen to return to Durban.
