Property For Sale: Sharks Players Not Included!

A would-be homeowner gets more than he bargained for when viewing an apartment occupied by Premiership Rugby superstars Faf de Klerk, Rob du Preez, and Arron Reed

A balcony with a skyline view, spacious open plan living room, two modern bathrooms... and three international rugby superstars?

It might sound like the start of a joke, but that's what one unsuspecting would-be homeowner came up against when viewing an apartment in a new tongue-in-cheek video launched to celebrate the two-year renewal of a partnership between Manchester-based estate agents, homes4u, and Sale Sharks.

Fresh from recent back-to-back games against French side Bordeaux Begles in the Challenge Cup, Sale Sharks stars Faf de Klerk, Rob du Preez and Arron Reed star in the new video, surprising house hunter John.

Andrew Mellor, Partner Development Manager at homes4u, said: "We wanted a fun way to celebrate the renewal of a brilliant partnership between Sale Sharks and ourselves. I am delighted the players got stuck in and enjoyed themselves, let’s hope they can add a couple of Oscars to the trophy cabinet this season!

“Finding that perfect property for sale in Manchester city centre these days can seem like a daunting task but properties featuring three world rugby superstars are even harder to find! The players have definitely added some curb-appeal to the property and we’re expecting it to be snapped up by someone very soon!”

Sale Sharks Commercial Director and former player, Mark Cueto, added: "The lads have been putting in some great performances on the pitch this year and it’s good to see that they’re translating that into acting now – although they might need a few more classes before they’re ready for the big screen!

“In all seriousness, we were really happy to help homes4u promote one of their properties in a quirky way. We really value the support of all of our partners and we’re always happy to get involved in things like this with them, so I’m sure Faf and the lads will be back out again soon."
