#5. Lood de Jager – released
The international second-row will reportedly return to South Africa when his contract expires.
#6. Faf de Klerk – Yokohama Canon Eagles
Previously, it was reported that Faf de Klerk, who has been with English club Sale Sharks since 2017, was set to take up a £900 000 per year (R18.5 million) offer from the Hurricanes in Japan.
However, it now appears that it is in fact the Canon Eagles who have swooped in to secure his signature, with De Klerk in line to join fellow Springbok Jesse Kriel at the club.
