Springbok World Cup-winning fullback Warrick Gelant has made the switch from the Bulls to Super Rugby rivals the Stormers, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

Gelant, 25, will swap Pretoria for Cape Town and has been brought in to fill the gap left by another Springbok, Dillyn Leyds, who has moved to La Rochelle in France.

“Warrick has established himself as one of the most dynamic backline players in SA, so we could not be more thrilled to have him on our books,” Stormers coach John Dobson said.

Gelant, who can also play on the wing, was part of the Bok squad that lifted the World Cup in Japan in November 2019, though he did not feature in the match-day squad in the final win over England.
