SOUTH African rugby union star Barry Jacobsz has put a move to Huddersfield on ice after clearing the red-tape problems which stopped him playing for Rotherham Titans.
The 29-year-old former sevens international, who is joint manager of the Heritage Health Academy at Lindley, returns to action for the National I club at London Welsh tomorrow.
Rotherham accepted a four-point deduction for fielding flanker Jacobsz, who has been on their books since 2006, after his registration ceased.
The Bloemfontein-born player, who wants permanent residency in this country, is now free to resume his Rotherham career, but still hopes to join Huddersfield when his contract expires at the end of this season.
“There were problems with my paperwork but everything is sorted out now,” said the man who played Super 14 rugby for the Cheetahs.
“I’ve been training hard and it will be good to get back out onto the pitch for Rotherham.
“But living in the town and having had a chance to look at the Huddersfield set-up, I’m very interested in joining next season.”
Huddersfield host Hull Ionians in National III North tomorrow.
