Earlier this year, the Sharks captain was targeted by overseas clubs after SA Rugby enforced a 21-day contractual exit window during the Covid-19 lockdown.

However, the 26-year-old has opted to remain in Durban and it was confirmed on Monday that he has signed for the Sharks until 2022.

Am joined the Sharks in 2016 after a stint with the Southern Kings.

A World Cup winner with the Springboks in 2019, Am boasts 15 Test caps.
