Sydney Roosters have announced the signing of 18-year-old South African centre JP du Plessis on a three-year contract.

Du Plessis, who attended the renowned rugby development school of Paul Roos Gymnasium Stellenbosch, which has produced a number of South African internationals, will join the Roosters for the 2010 season.

The signing follows a recent trip to South Africa by the club's recruitment manager Peter O'Sullivan.

"JP is a quick and beautifully balanced player and will be a real asset to the club," said O'Sullivan.

"He is considered a rising star of South African rugby so while he will take 12 months to learn rugby league, he has the potential to be a key player for the Roosters."
