Jean-Luc du Preez Puts Rest to Bulls Rumours

Jean-Luc du Preez Puts Rest to Bulls Rumours

Sharks loose forward Jean-Luc du Preez has signed a contract extension at the Durban club, despite reported interest from the Bulls.

Du Preez has impressed and made his Springbok debut as a replacement for Warren Whiteley in the three-Test series against France last year.

According to Netwerk 24, the 22-year-old's form had reportedly caught the eye of Bulls coach John Mitchell, who is looking to strengthen his squad after a dismal Super Rugby campaign.

But, as expected, Du Preez will remain with his two brothers and father at Kings Park. In an interview with The Witness, Sharks communications manager Novashni Chetty confirmed that Du Preez was staying in Durban.

“Jean-Luc is contracted to the Sharks, he’s actually just re-signed with the franchise, so those rumours that he might leave aren’t true,” she said.

“If a player has signed, you have to wait until he is a free agent before you can negotiate with them and Jean-Luc is no longer a free agent.”
