Taute to rejoin Stormers

Date published: November 24 2016

Munster have confirmed that former Springbok centre Jaco Taute will rejoin the Stormers at the end of the year.

The centre was signed to Munster on a fourth month contract and will leave the Irish club for Cape Town at the end of the year.

Munster director of rugby Rassie Erasmus said they won’t try and make a bid for Taute once his Stormers contract ends.

“No (we have not applied for his return). He is going back. He is still contracted with the Stormers so we only have him until December 31. He was only here while Francis (Saili) was injured, so he is going back,” Erasmus told THE42.

Taute has been in fine form since joining the Cork side, scoring three tries in his short stay.
