Former Stormers, Sharks three-quarter Kobus van Wyk a surprise signing for the Hurricanes
AUCKLAND – The Hurricanes on Tuesday sprung a surprise when they announced that former Stormers and Sharks backline star Kobus van Wyk has been signed for the Super Rugby season.
The 27-year-old Van Wyk was on the verge of Springbok selection for a few seasons after he was capped for the SA Under-20 side. He plays wing and centre.
The Hurricanes are coached by New Zealander John Plumtree who spent several years at the Sharks and would have worked with Van Wyk.
He had a short stint in the French Top 14 competition with Bordeaux.
