Cheetahs flyhalf Sias Ebersohn has signed a two year deal with the Western Force Super Rugby franchise.
Ruggaworld.co.za reports that the player was approached during the Force’s visit to South Africa recently, with Force CEO Vern Reid saying that Sias will make a significant impact with the Force as he has been touted as a potential Springbok.
Sias will join the team ahead of the 2013 Super Rugby campaign, and is expected to remain with the Cheetahs for the Currie Cup season. This move was apparently negotiated without Cheetahs coaching staff being aware of it.
The deal is now before the Australian Rugby Union, who has to approve all foreign player deals, as Sias is seen as the one foreign development player each franchise is allowed.Tweet
