Luke Watson signs for WP

14 September 2004 | Sport
AMIDST the furore surrounding Schalk Burger it has been announced that Natal Sharks loose forward Luke Watson has signed to join Western Province.
Coming hard on the heels of the row that has broken out over Springbok flank Schalk Burger\'s red card during the WP vs Lions rugby match at Newlands at the weekend the signing of fetcher flank Watson is bound to raise eyebrows.
Western Province\'s interest in Watson, a former SA Schools and SA under-21 captain, has not been a secret, but given national coach Jake White\'s stance that he would not pick Schalk Burger and Watson in the same team his arrival at Newlands is not without contention.
Watson, renowned for his propensity to chase the loose ball and attract penalties (the trait for which Burger is now in trouble) will be joining up with another current Bok loose forward in Joe van Niekerk while Province also have at their disposal the like of Hendrik Gerber and Adri Badenhorst.
Although Burger fulfils the fetching role in the Springbok side, Watson is clearly seen as the successor to Corné Krige; an assessment which indicates a difference of opinion between White and Province coach Carel du Plessis as to the best role for young Burger.
In a Press release yesterday, WP Rugby announced that they were \"pleased to confirm the signing of open-side flank, Luke Watson from the Natal Sharks.\"
