'An impressive scrummager': Wasps sign tighthead Pieter Scholtz
Wasps have announced the signing of Pieter Scholtz, who will join the club at the end of the season from Guinness PRO14 side Scarlets. The 27-year-old tighthead prop joined Scarlets in 2020 from South African side Southern Kings.
Wasps boss Lee Blackett said: “We are very happy to sign Pieter for next season. He is an impressive scrummager, who has performed to a high level in the PRO14 for Scarlets this season. We believe that he will be a strong addition to our group of props at the club. We are all looking forward to working with Pieter and seeing him play in a Wasps shirt.”
Scholtz added: “I’m very excited to start this new journey with the club and put on the Wasps jersey. I have been talking to the coaches and I am really looking forward to working with them and the other players next season.”
"It's fantastic to work over here in England. I thought it was a much bigger deal than it was"
