RUMOUR | Saracens set to sign Springbok playmaker

Saracens have reportedly completed the signing of Springbok scrum-half Ivan van zyl to aid their promotion bid, according to The Rugby Paper.

Bulls chief executive Edgar Rathbone told Netwerk24 on Monday that Van Zyl’s move had not been confirmed, but did confirm the scrum-half does want to move to Saracens.

However, he added that the halfback won’t be released by the Bulls before July next year as he is under contract to them.

Saracens, who are based in North London and have a long association with South African players, coaches and administrators, have yet to respond to RUCK’s request for comment on Van Zyl.

The 25-year-old played six times for the Springboks in 2018.
