Stander’s Force move confirmed

The Sharks have not said anything officially, but Brynard Stander’s agents have confirmed the open secret that the former Westville Boy will play his rugby in Australia – for at least the next two years.

23-year-old Stander made his way through the Sharks age-group and Vodacom Cup ranks to play a relatively small role at Currie Cup level over the last two seasons. As a player who impressed with his high work-rate and uncompromising approach, comparisons to the likes of Willem Alberts and Jean Deysel were inevitable and with those two wrecking balls still firmly in the picture, along with a myriad of other back row options in Durban, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Stander battled to force his way into Super Rugby contention.

He was singled out by new Director of Rugby Brendan Venter as a special player ahead of this year’s Currie Cup, though and enjoyed starts in both of the opening games of the campaign (scoring a maiden try in the second of those). Injury, however, cut short his run in the side and once rotated out, he battled to re-establish himself.

Stander’s profile on the Union Sports Group website confirms that he has “taken up a position with the Western Force in Australia for the next two years.” He would presumably have joined the Force with a view to securing Australian qualification at some stage in the future.

We’d like to wish Bry all the best on his new adventure.
