Transfer Rumours: Another Springbok reportedly on his way to the Aviva Premiership

Springbok and Stormers centre Juan de Jongh could be the next high-profile player to leave South Africa for a future abroad.

According to Netwerk24, De Jongh looks set for a move to Wasps in the English Premiership.



The move, according to the report, would come at the end of the current Super Rugby season.

With just 19 Test matches to his name, a move abroad would rule De Jongh out of Springbok contention until 2019 because of SA Rugby’s new policy on overseas-based players.

As from July 1 this year, only players with 30 or more Springbok caps will be eligible for the national selection if they are based overseas.

In 2019, a World Cup year, that rule will not exist and everybody will be available for selection.
