The Sharks have put their recruitment campaign into overdrive.


They have unveiled Pumas prop Ignatius Prinsloo as the latest acquisition – the fourth significant signing this week.

Prinsloo, who made his Pro14 debut for the Southern Kings in their match against the Cheetahs in January 2020, joined the Pumas in Nelspruit later that year after the demise of the Port Elizabeth-based franchise.

He has made 30-odd appearances for the Pumas and the 26-year-old has been a mainstay for the defending Currie Cup champions this season.

Michael Horak, the Sharks’ High-Performance Manager, said they are very excited about the “talented” tighthead, busy making his way through the game in South Africa.

“He is a very dynamic ball carrier and strong at set piece,” Horak said, adding: “We are looking forward to welcoming him to the Sharks family, where we believe he will further develop his potential and skillset.”

Prinsloo will join current Pumas teammate Diego Appollis, an impressive midfielder that has troubled defences all season.


Other signings by the Sharks this week include the Cheetahs duo of Siyabonga Masuku and George Cronje.
