Bezuidenhout joins Stormers on loan



Lions hooker Martin Bezuidenhout is to join the Stormers until the end of March.

Stormers coach Allister Coetzee on Friday confirmed that negotiations with Bezuidenhout, a 23-year-old with two years of Super Rugby experience, had been concluded, with the player coming to the Cape on a short-term loan.

The SOS to Bezuidenhout was sent out because the Stormers are struggling with injuries to two of their three hookers.

Last year’s Currie Cup winning Western Province hooker Scarra Ntubeni recently underwent a shoulder operation that has ruled him out of rugby until April.

And Tiaan Liebenberg, who played for the Springboks in 2012, is still a couple of weeks away from taking contact in training as he continues his recovery from a back injury sustained last October.

“Martin will be here until the end of March, but it could be longer. It all depends on how well and quickly Scarra and Tiaan recover,” said Coetzee.

The coach added that he had said that he was searching for a hooker who boasts Super Rugby experience, and in that regard Bezuidenhout, who has received high recommendations on Bezuidenhout from players, fits the bill.
