Sharks secure Bothma for Super Rugby

Pumas loose forward Renaldo Bothma returns to Durban, where it all started for him as a 19-year-old, to play Super Rugby for the Sharks in 2015 and 2016.

25-year-old Bothma joined the Sharks after finishing school in Heidelberg, but left as an under 21 year old to join the Lions before making a senior debut in the black and white. He has since risen to prominence as a Pumas player and has also emerged as a test regular for Namibia.

Bothma will remain contracted to the Pumas until the end of 2016, but will be available to the Sharks for the 2015 and 2016 Super Rugby campaigns. World Cup commitments will see him miss the 2015 Currie Cup entirely, but he will play in Puma grey in the 2016 installment of the domestic showcase.

Renaldo stands roughly 1.9m in his socks and weighs 113kgs. He is comfortable in any back row position, but has come to the fore in recent years as a ball-carrying option at blindside flank or number 8, a position where the Sharks need depth following the departure of Jean Deysel to Japan.
