The silly season is truly upon us, with players moving like pieces on a chess board. Promising young Bulls tighthead prop, Rossouw de Klerk will join the Toyota Free State Cheetahs for 2 years, at the end of the current Currie Cup competition. The loss of de Klerk is likely to be offset, by the Bulls signing of young Marcel van der Merwe. Apparently Rayno Gerber was also attempting to get onto the the Cheetahs player list. Naka has signed Ross Geldenhuys, and Pieter Stemmet, to cover the departure of WP Nel, but they have been signed fr the CC only thus far.
In further news from the land of the flying Cheetah, Boom Prinsloo has been ruled out with a shoulder injury. This leaves Naka with only 4 fit loose forwards, for the weekends clash with the Bulls in Bloemfontein, on Friday night. Heinrich Brüssow (knee), Phillip van der Walt (foot), and Juan Smith (heel), still out injured. Thus Naka can select from Davon Raubenheimer, Lappies Labuschagné, Kabamba Floors and Frans Viljoen.
