The Sharks have announced that prop Thomas du Toit has committed his immediate future to the team by signing a new three-year contract.
On the back of this news, Du Toit will spend three-months with Munster on a loan deal. He will re-join the Sharks ahead of their preparations for the 2017 Super Rugby season in January, with head coach Robert du Preez pleased with the arrangement with the Irish province.
“We have no doubt that this opportunity will allow Thomas to gain valuable experience and some important game-time under his belt, ahead of the start of the 2017 Super Rugby tournament,” said Du Preez.
“The European Professional Club Rugby tournament is a competition where scrummaging is at the forefront, and this will add to his growth and development as a player.”
