Pietersen returns to WP

WP have announced the signing of fullback Joe Pietersen.

The 27-year-old left the Cape Town union after the Stormers’ Super Rugby campaign last year. He signed for French club Bayonne, but was released this month and has decided to rejoin Province on a two-year deal.

Before leaving for France, Pietersen played 56 matches for WP and scored 345 points. He has also played 21 Super Rugby matches for the Stormers, scoring 107 points.
