Stormers Players Nizaam Carr, Dewaldt Duvenage And Raymond Rhule Released To Play In Europe

JOHANNESBURG - Stormers players Nizaam Carr, Dewaldt Duvenage and Raymond Rhule have all been released early from their contracts to pursue opportunities abroad.

Loose forward Carr, scrumhalf Duvenage and wing Rhule will all leave the Stormers at the end of the current Vodacom Super Rugby season, to join European clubs.

Carr, who came through the age-group ranks and finishes his time at Newlands just short of 100 Stormers caps, will join English Premiership club Wasps.

Duvenage, who also played age-group rugby for Western Province and made his Stormers debut back in 2009, ends his second stint with the Cape franchise with over 90 caps for the Stormers in total, as he heads to Italian club Benetton Treviso.

Rhule joined the Stormers at the start of the season and has scored five tries in his 12 appearances. He will join prop JC Janse van Rensburg at French side Grenoble.

Director of Rugby, Gert Smal, said that all three players were granted early release from their contracts with the DHL Stormers.

"We appreciate what Nizaam, Dewaldt and Raymond have all contributed in their time here and wish them all the best for their future.

"Nizaam and Dewaldt both came through the system here and have been stalwarts for us over the years, while Raymond added another string to our bow this season.
