Boks' star Du Toit commits to Stormers after change of heartSports | REUTERS 22 May 2020
World Rugby Player of the Year Pieter-Steph du Toit has confirmed he will stay at South African Super Rugby side the Stormers after initially giving notice he would terminate his contract.
Players had a 21-day window to opt out of their contracts and become free agents in light of pay cuts forced on them by South African Rugby in a bid to cut expenditure in 2020.
The World Cup-winning lock served notice of his intention to terminate last week, but he has had a change of heart.
"Pieter-Steph is an important team member. His extraordinary work rate, coupled with his ball carrying skills, makes our forward pack even more formidable," Stormers coach John Dobson said.
