Rumours of a Cronje double exit

Good news, fans – it’s very definitely “silly season” in South African rugby land, as players whose contract expire at the end of October start to lift their heads a little and see what else is out there.

The important thing to remember, though, is that most of the talk that comes out at this time of the year is just that – talk. Agents are wiley creatures indeed and have been known to spread a story of a rumoured deal with another province simply to up a player’s value. In short, take everything you hear (or read) with a pinch of salt and wait for the official confirmation. As we report these movements here, we’ll always be sure to indicate what our level of confidence is – and, of course, whether they are officially confirmed or not.

The latest that we’ve heard concerns the Cronje twins, scrumhalf Ross and flyhalf Guy, rumoured to be looking at a move to the Lions. While Ross has enjoyed some Currie Cup game time this year (performing admirably when given the opportunity), Guy has seemingly fallen out of favour and is well down in the flyhalf pecking order. Since the pair seem keen to stick together, a move to the Lions, where they’d meet up with Michaelhouse schoolmates in Pat Cilliers and Mike Rhodes, could well be a sensible one. Again, we’d like to emphasise that this is just a rumour at this stage and we have no idea whether it’s actually going to happen.

In news concerning another young flyhalf, it appears that Willie du Plessis is definitely leaving Durban, though. After playing regularly at flyhalf for the under 21 side over the last two years, he lost the jersey a few weeks ago to Fred Zeilinga and appears to have decided to pursue options elsewhere. The Liond and Blue Bulls are said to be the likely recipients of his services.
