Utility forward Hendre Stassen has joined the DHL Stormers ahead of the upcoming season.
The 25-year-old, who is able to play at both lock and flank, will add valuable depth to the DHL Stormers’ forward stocks.
The former Junior Springbok stands at two metres tall and will offer crucial versatility in the DHL Stormers jersey.
Head Coach John Dobson said that Stassen has been training hard and is keen to make an impact for the DHL Stormers.
“Hendre has shown a great attitude since joining us, he is a hard-worker who is ready to give everything for the team.
“We are looking forward to seeing the impact he can make both in the second row and on the side of the scrum for us,” he said.
Stassen said that he is very happy to be starting this new chapter in Cape Town.
“It has been great to connect with my new teammates in the pre-season and I am very grateful for the opportunity I have been given to represent the DHL Stormers.
“I want to make the most of it and show my commitment to the team,” he said.
