Date published: June 7 2015

The Sharks have confirmed the signing of loose forward Philip van der Walt, who will join up with the side ahead of the upcoming Currie Cup campaign.

The domestic tournament, which kicks off in early August, will see the 25-year-old forward turn out for the Durban team after returning from a stint in France.

Van der Walt played in the Pro D2 for Biarritz in 2014 but has now returned to South Africa, having played his senior rugby for Free State over the years.

"Standing 1.93m tall and weighing 110kg, he will bolster the Cell C Sharks who will be missing a number of players in this World Cup year," said the Sharks.
