Date published: August 24 2015

Western Province have confirmed that Springbok lock Pieter-Steph du Toit will be furthering his career with the Stormers and Western Province from November.

Having recently announced the signings of props JC Janse van Rensburg and JP Smith, as well as capturing the signature of Springbok winger Cornal Hendricks, the confirmation of Du Toit's signing is a huge boost for both the Stormers and Western Province.

Du Toit, who recently turned 23, was a member of the triumphant SA U20 team of 2012, before making his Test debut for the Springboks in Cardiff in November 2013.

To date he has played four Tests, the most recent being against Argentina in Buenos Aires earlier this month when he featured as a replacement flanker.

"We want Western Province to continue to attract the biggest names in South Africa and someone like Pieter-Steph du Toit certainly fits the bill," said WP director of rugby Gert Smal.

"We have our eye on a few more players, along with some re-signings that we will announce very soon, whilst we will also be concluding our search for a new Super Rugby coach shortly."
