The Western Force are courting South African flyhalves Derick Hougaard and Peter Grant.

The Western Force will lose star flyhalf Matt Giteau next season, and are said to be in talks with both players, according to The Australian newspaper.

Hougaard, who made his Test debut for the Springboks at the Subiaco Oval in Perth in 2003, may return there next year if the Force’s bid is successful.

Hougaard has played 43 Super Rugby games for the Bulls and eight Tests for the Springboks. He currently plays for English club Leicester.

With Heyneke Meyer being touted as the possible new coach for the New South African rugby franchise The Southern Kings, don’t rule out a move there either should his Western Force move not transpire. Hougaard is known to be a favourite of Heyneke Meyer.

Grant has played mostly at flyhalf but is also a competent number 12.
