Pumas backrower Willie Engelbrecht has joined the Stormers on loan for the duration of the upcoming Rainbow Cup.
With Siya Kolisi leaving for the Sharks and Jaco Coetzee off to Bath, the Cape franchises' loose forward stocks were depleted in the lead up to the tournament.
That was exacerbated by three-month injury layoff for Jarno Augustus which forced the Stormers to act according to Netwerk24.
Reports also suggest that former Western Province hooker, Deon Fourie could make a return to Cape Town from France where he plays for Grenoble in the second division.
According to Netwerk24, Formers SA Schools loose forward Evan Roos is also now a Stormers player after they secured him on a permanent deal following his initial loan move from the Sharks.
