Noticed on the sale forum (as they’re signing lots of Saffas) a link to this article which has Stephan Lewies as joining Quins.  Hope this isn’t instead of Snyman

Already posted in another thread. There are mistakes in there such as Ferreira already having left Hurricanes without playing a game and RG Snyman having been in Japan already since 2017. So still holding out hope that we're getting Snyman.

Fact checking myself...

Someone on Twitter just made me aware of the fact that Ferreira actually left after the article was written and it has now been updated. And obviously there are possible explanations for why Snyman is listed as going to Heat when he's already there (either that he's leaving Bulls and committing all his time to Heat, or he's just re-signing with Heat) so I am starting to prepare myself for disappointment. However, Fiss does have a very high % success rate with rumours. So let's wait and see...

Well we've definitely signed Stephan Lewies coz that's DC's latest clue on twitter.

Yup, looks like we're not getting Snyman after all - seems the article above is well-informed.

At 6'7" and 18st he's a big unit and no mistake....and the SA locks aren't renowned for being shrinking violets.

I'm a little disappointed that it's looking unlikely to be Snyman, but I'm not going to let that make me any less excited to see Lewies play. Looks like a beast.

Never heard of Lewies and know nothing about him, but look forward to welcoming him and hope he turns out to be a great signing. He's replacing Merrick, so not massive shoes to fill imho.

OK - but who is replacing the 33-year old, perennially injured James Horwill?

While he's still in contract? Obviously no one. And you know that Rodders, come on!
