Waratahs bolster halfback stocks

6:40 pm on 1 July 2011

The New South Wales Waratahs have bolstered their halfback ranks for the next Super Rugby season by signing the Cheetahs No.9 Sarel Pretorius for two years as their senior foreign player.

The 27-year-old will be a welcome addition to the squad missing the starting halfback Luke Burgess who's going to France.

Pretorius scored nine tries in super rugby this season, topping the touchdown list with another South African, Bjorn Basson from the Bulls.
