Rohan Janse van Rensburg to leave Sale Sharks

Sale Sharks can today confirm that centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg will leave the club at the end of the current season after almost four years in Manchester.

The 27-year-old originally joined Sharks on loan from the Golden Lions, in South Africa, during the 2017/18 season. 

Rohan scored three tries in eight appearances during his loan spell and impressed enough to make the deal permanent the following summer ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. 

Since then, he has gone onto make 73 appearances for Sharks – including 22 this season – scoring 23 tries.

 Known as a powerful player, Rohan made his first Springboks appearance in 2016 in a non-cap friendly with the Barbarians, in which he scored a last-gasp try to secure a 31-31 draw. 

 Rohan was also included in the Springboks squad for their 2016 Outgoing series of Europe and he started the final game of the tour against Wales at inside centre. He has one international cap for South Africa. 

Everyone at Sale Sharks would like to thank Rohan for his huge contribution to the club over the past four years and we wish him all the very best for the future.
