Lourens Adriaanse has signed a two year deal with the Sharks.
Adriaanse will be leaving the Griquas and joining the Sharks in November. Adriaanse will be part of the Sharks in preperation for next year’s Super 15.
This does look like a strategic move as the first choice tight head prop Jannie Du Plessis played in all the 2013 Super Rugby matches. With the Sharks new rotations policy that will not do. This will see Adriaanse play a key role in the Super 15 next year and could also see him possible cement his place in the Springbok side as a tight head prop, a position where the Springboks do not have a lot of options in.
