Sale Sharks Sign Jean-Luc Du Preez

Sale Sharks have announced the signing of South African international Jean-Luc du Preez from Super Rugby side the Sharks on a loan deal.

Du Preez has signed a three-month deal as cover for the injured Tom Curry and will link up with his brother, Rob, this week. He will be available for selection for Sale Sharks ahead of Round Eight of the Premiership.

The 23-year-old back-rower can play flanker or number eight and has been capped 13 times by the Springboks along with representing the Sharks over 60 times, winning the Currie Cup with the Durban side just three weeks ago.

Commenting on the signing, Sale Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said: "Jean-Luc will arrive on Friday and will join the squad in London before the Saracens fixture. He is part of the formidable Sharks back-row in South Africa and can play in all back three positions.

"He is 6ft 4” and 18 stone so a powerful athletic lad, and he will fit in well with the culture here at Sale and add to the winning mentality we are creating as we gain momentum this year."
