Sale Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond was pleased to announce the signing this week, he said:
“Coenie joining us, along with Lood is a huge statement of where we want to be, he is 130kg, can play on both sides of the scrum and has a skillset away from the set piece that is unique for a prop of his size. He also has considerable experience playing with Akker Van Der Merwe at the Sharks so I think he will fit in perfectly at Sale. We look forward to welcoming him to Manchester later in the year ahead of the 19/20 Gallagher Premiership.”
