Winger Yaw Penxe and utility forward Thembelani Bholi have joined the Sharks from the Southern Kings.

A Sharks spokesperson confirmed to Sport24 on Wednesday that the duo "have been signed on short-term deals with immediate effect".

This comes after the Kings franchise was placed in liquidation and all their playing activities suspended.

Penxe impressed for the Green team in the Springbok Showdown at Newlands over the weekend, while Bholi, who can play flank and lock, returned to the Kings at the end of 2019 after a stint with the Bulls.
