Mostert puts Premier­ship on red alert

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

SPRING­BOK lock Franco Mostert is at­tract­ing the in­ter­est of a host of Premier­ship clubs for when his con­tract in Ja­pan and South Africa runs out next year.

Mostert, 26, plays for the Ri­coh Black Rams and the Lions, but is look­ing for a move to the Premier­ship in time for the start of next sea­son.

The younger brother of JP Mostert, who cap­tains the Fal­cons in the Cur­rie Cup, has also got ex­pe­ri­ence with the Blue Bulls and the Golden Lions.

Mostert, capped 14 times by his coun­try af­ter mak­ing his de­but against Ire­land just over 12 months ago, is one of the Boks’ lead­ing locks along­side Eben Etze­beth.

It is lit­tle sur­prise that Premier­ship cham­pi­ons Ex­eter Chiefs have been tak­ing a close look at him over the last few weeks.

It is be­lieved Le­ices­ter Tigers, Worces­ter War­riors, Glouces­ter, Bath, Sale Sharks and Cham­pi­onship lead­ers Bris­tol have all sounded him out about his plans.
