Sharks lock Pieter-Steph du Toit has pledged his immediate future to the Sharks, opting to extend his contract by two more years, according to EWN Sport.

This is the second piece of great news to come from EWN’s Jean Smyth this morning, after he confirmed that the du Plessis brothers appear likely to stay in Durban.

Pieter-Steph, who is highly rated by Bok coach Heyneke Meyer as the next “big thing”, has been aggressively targeted by both the Bulls and Western Province, but after a meeting with new Sharks CEO John Smit on Wednesday, opted to rather stay in Durban to become a great with the Sharks.

Well done Smitty, well done Steph. A little bit of magic!

Update: The Sharks have now confirmed the signing on their own website as well…

The Sharks are pleased to announce that Pieter-Steph du Toit has reaffirmed his commitment to The Sharks by re-signing for a further two years.

John Smit, The Sharks CEO stated, “Pieter-Steph has shown great promise and he has had a positive impact on the team since joining the senior set-up. We are thrilled that he has reaffirmed his commitment to The Sharks.”

The Sharks Commercial Manager, Rudolf Straeuli added, “We are delighted to have secured the signature of a player of the calibre of Pieter-Steph. We not only identified him, but he has also been developed through The Sharks Academy. He has a bright future ahead of him.”

Pieter – Steph said, “As a twenty year old rugby player I am living my dream and I am extremely privileged to be identified by The Sharks as a player who can play a role in the province going forward. I will continue to learn from the many experienced players in our team and I hope that I can make the contribution required and expected of me. I will work as hard as I can and always do my best for The Sharks.”
