    He played for the Junior Springboks in 2018 and joined Griquas that same year and has since developed into one of the union’s key players.

    Noticing his potential, the Bulls have signed the No 9 to help fill the void left by the departure of Ivan van Zyl who left Loftus Versfeld after signing for English club Saracens.

    In addition, Jake White’s attempts to lure Francois Hougaard back to Pretoria appear to have failed.

    Griquas coach Scott Mathie said it was bittersweet seeing a player of Burger’s ability leave Kimberley.

    ‘Obviously having a player of Zak’s calibre leave us is not ideal but we at Griquas pride ourselves in giving players opportunities when they present themselves and we believe Zak has the talent and right mindset to become a Springbok in the near future,’ Mathie said.

    ‘His leadership qualities will also be missed, and he is a great man to have in any rugby setup and culture. He will definitely be missed by his teammates and the rest of the management, but we really do wish him all the best. He deserves everything good that comes his way.’
