Springbok hooker Bongi Mbonambi shed light on why he chose to leave the Stormers for the Sharks.
It was confirmed last week that Mbonambi will join the Sharks on November 1.
In an interview with Report newspaper, the 2019 World Cup winner said his decision to join the Sharks was not a decision he made lightly, nor alone.
“I have a family to support,” Mbonambi said. “Life after rugby is important. I had the chance to start my own business, BM2 Concrete, in Durban with my agent as a partner. We worked well together.
“As I get older players start to think about life after their playing careers. So one of the most important reasons I joined the Sharks is that they empower and equip their players for life after rugby. .
“I realize that I will be in Durban to play rugby first and foremost and after that to get this opportunity off the pitch.”

It is understood that Mbonambi, 30, is also on the books of sports management company Roc Nation, which has several Springboks on their books.
Roc Nation is part of the New York-based consortium that acquired a controlling stake in the Sharks earlier this year.
Mbonambi added that he had received several lucrative offers from foreign clubs, but believed his decision to stay in South Africa proved his loyalty to that country and the Springboks.
Mbonambi, who has 36 Test selections, had been on the books for Western Province and the Stormers since 2015.
Prior to that, he was under contract with the Bulls between 2012 and 2014.
