Springbok Sevens squad member Danwel Demas has been released by the Cheetahs to play for Italian side Viadana next season.

The Italian club paid the Cheetahs a transfer fee in order to have him released from his Currie Cup obligations, with Naka Drotské professing himself happy with what they got and saying a replacement had already been all but named.

“He’s (Demas) got a great opportunity overseas and we felt it would be good for his career if he used it,” said Drotské

Demas’s agent, BC du Plessis, confirmed the move and said the player would link up with his new team-mates on July 1. His initial contract runs for 10 months – one season for the team, which will be taking part in the Magners League as Aironi next season.

Jongi Nokwe is set to be fit for the Currie Cup campaign for the Cheetahs, while JW Jonker and George Whitehead can also be used on the wing.

    Kallie Voekie at least played a game in the S14… unlike a certain Mr. Meyer… :mrgreen:

  • Rob, Vin
    I stand to be corrected but I read somewhere that Kallievoekie’s contract ends at the end of May which means he could possibly have played his last game for us!!
    I hope that’s the case

  • Joe ‘Montgomery’ Pieterson has also decided to run over to France, can’t blame him though, he’s 26 and never been given a shot at the green and gold, Pdiv has a hard on for Zit-crashner (I wonder why :roll: )

    Joe P only performed well in last year’s CC and then this season’s S14.

    It is not as if he has been knocking on the door for that long.

    Frans is the incumbent and Kirchner has been around for a while now.

  • @wpw (Comment 9) : You’re probably right, but I am yet to see Kirchner show more than just glimpses of brilliance on the field.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 10) :

    I know. Look he is solid and hardly has a bad game (for the Bulls) but he doesn’t have that ‘x-factor’ to make things happen out of nothing.

    Reminds me of one Johan Roets, King of the Up and Under!! :twisted:
