The Blue Bulls have released lock Wilhelm Steenkamp on loan to the Sharks for the remainder of the Super 14 .

Steenkamp, who has 19 Super rugby caps, will return to his Pretoria base after completion of the competition, and will be available for the Bulls once the Currie Cup season gets underway.

According to the Bulls’ business and high performance manager, Ian Schwartz, a request from the Sharks to utilise the services of Steenkamp was granted and the player will head to Durban immediately.

“Wilhelm will get playing time at the Sharks, which will not only benefit the player, but South African rugby as a whole,” Schwartz

“We have no doubt he will add value to the Sharks in their campaign,” he said. — Sapa
