So the dust has settled on the inaugural United Rugby Championship tournament, with the Stormers celebrating a deserved first championship win over the Bulls…
South Africa fullback Warrick Gelant has made the switch from the Pretoria-based Bulls to Super Rugby rivals the Cape Town Stormers.
Gelant, 25, will swap Pretoria for Cape Town and has been brought in to fill the gap left by another Springbok, Dillyn Leyds, who has moved to La Rochelle in France.
“Warrick has established himself as one of the most dynamic back line players in South Africa, so we could not be more thrilled to have him on our books going forward,” Stormers coach John Dobson said in a statement on Wednesday.
Gelant, who can also play on the wing, was part of the Boks squad that lifted the World Cup in Japan last November, though he did not feature in the match-day squad in the final win over England.
