Boland Cavaliers wing and Springbok Sevens star, Danwel Demas, will turn out for the Cheetahs next season.
Sport 24 reports that this was confirmed by Boland team manager, Denver Pienaar.
“He already signed the contract.
“Yes, it is bad news for us. But what could we do?” Pienaar asked.
Demas’s departure is big blow for Boland as he and Deon Scholtz were earmarked to become a potent wing combination next year.
Meanwhile, Boland’s exodus to the Free State Cheetahs continues.
It all started two seasons ago when Boland head coach Hawies Fourie became the Cheetahs’ backline coach.
After that, several Bolanders followed him to Bloemfontein, including fullback Hennie Daniller, scrumhalf Tewis de Bruyn, wing Jongi Nokwe and lock David de Villiers.
Recently Boland also lost tighthead prop, Jean Botha, to the Cheetahs. He will join the Free State team after the promotion/relegation matches.
And after Boland’s gutsy performance against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday, more Cavaliers could get a Bloemfontein call-up.Tweet
