Botha joins the Cheetahs
A string of injuries has resulted in the Cheetahs recruiting the services of Sevens speedster Bernado Botha for the Currie Cup.
The Cheetahs are missing Rayno Benjamin, Tonderai Chavhanga and Cameron Jacobs through injury and as a result have looked to secure cover out wide. The union has managed to negotiate Botha's release from the Blitzbokke for the competition.
"Bernado is a similar sort of player as Rayno Benjamin," Cheetahs backline coach Hawies Fourie told the Volksblad.
"He's a good defender, strong ball carrier and has a high work ethic. That's what you need from a wing."
