Tim Swiel, the Under-20 member of Western Province Rugby, has rather opted to accept an offer from the Sharks and will move to Durban to further his rugby career.
WP, however, have contracted the necessary depth in the shape of 2012 SA Schools flyhalf Ryno Eksteen who is back to full fitness from a knee injury.
Furthermore, schoolboy flyhalves Brandon Thomson (SA Schools, 2013) and Ernst Stapelberg (the highly-rated No.10 from Eastern Province) are part of the star-studded Western Province Rugby Insitute intake for next year and will add to the selection options for the WP Under-19 and Under-21 teams in 2014. (See that squad here.)
Eksteen has two years of Under-21 rugby ahead of him, whilst Thompson and Stapelberg will be Under-19 in 2014.
