The Sharks have signed Baby Bok skipper Jeremy Ward from the Kings for the next Super Rugby season.
Ward will join the player exodus from the Kings in the wake of more financial woes, with the Sharks confirming the move on Twitter on Wednesday.
The young centre captained the South African U20 side in the last Junior Championship in England where they came fourth. Ward has already been capped in Super Rugby after playing for the Kings from the bench.
Another athlete reportedly leaving the Kings is Stefan Willemse, who will ply his trade at Western Province.
