Jacobs’ told Die Burger that he hopes to join the Stormers or Boland next season.

‘The Cape is my home and I wouldn’t easily say no if the Stormers are interested. I have talked to Boland but haven’t heard back from them yet,’ he said.

Jacobs made 156 appearances for the Sharks since 2001, 71 of them in the Currie Cup and 88 in Super Rugby. He also represented the Bulls and Cats before making the move to Durban.
