Rush have signed South African all-rounder Jurie Snyman for the 2019 season.

The 23 year-old is a powerful top order left-handed batsman, and right-arm off spinner.

He plays for Easterns, where he averages 47 in List-A cricket, and 27 in first-class competitions, with five centuries in both formats.

Snyman has experience in the UK, enjoying a successful debut season with Denby in the Derbyshire league scoring over 1000 runs.

He then spent three seasons in Scotland with Poloc, again scoring over 1000 runs in two seasons, as well as recording healthy wicket returns.

The club revealed the news on their Twitter account saying:
