Butch James has announced that he will be joining the Sharks for next year's Super Rugby campaign.
The fly-half had been rumoured to be returning home to Durban since his contract with the Lions expired at the end of the Currie Cup. The former Springbok underwent medical tests last week and has now confirmed the switch.
"Officially Black & White for next year! Its good to be home!!" he wrote on Twitter on Monday night.
The Sharks plan to use the 33-year-old as back-up to Patrick Lambie and as a mentor for their younger fly-halves.
