In form Golden Lions flanker Jaco Kriel seems to be joining the exodus of South African players to the Far East after signing for Kubota Spears. The Spears, coached by former Bulls gaffer Frans Ludeke already have Keegan Daniel, Lionel Mapoe and Grant Hattingh in their ranks, and are set to add Kriel and Bulls star Lappies Labuschagne to their roster.

Kriel has been in the form flanker in South Africa over the last year and a half but has surprisingly not yet been capped by the Boks.
