Siviwe Soyizwapi: In Cape Town for 2014

The Stormers have signed Southern Kings full-back Siviwe "Shakes" Soyizwapi on loan for their upcoming Super Rugby campaign.

Eastern Province Rugby CEO Charl Crous confirmed that Soyizwapi would be joining the Cape town-based outfit.

"Shakes left for Cape Town on Sunday and will be joining the Stormers to provide cover for them at Wing and full-back," he told the Kings' official website.

Crous said he had received the request to loan Soyizwapi to the Stormers, following the youngster's sterling performance against the Cape Town based Super Rugby side during their warm up match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on 7 February.

"We wish Shakes everything of the best and know that he will be a great asset to the Stormers," he added.

Soyizwapi played for the EP Kings at U21 Currie Cup level in 2012 and 2013, finishing the latter competition as the top try scorer.

He made his first class debut in the Kings 2012 Currie Cup promotion/relegation series against the Free State Cheetahs. Three appearances followed in the 2013 Vodacom Cup, as well as five appearances in the 2013 Currie Cup First Division before reverting to the U21 side for the remainder of the season.

Soyizwapi also played for the Southern Kings last year, filling in for the injured Hadleigh Parkes, making his Super Rugby debut in the 28-28 draw against the Brumbies in Canberra.

In October last year, Soyizwapi was called into an SA Sevens training squad, prior to the 2013 Dubai Sevens.
