SA Rugby has confirmed that the Cheetahs will be taking part in the European Challenge Cup next season as South Africa’s entry into the two major European tournaments was made official on Thursday.
Marcell Coetzee can’t wait to lead the Vodacom Bulls in the European Champions Cup, saying “it’s like playing international rugby every weekend”.
Duane Vermeulen says he could have stayed at the Vodacom Bulls, but chose to join Irish side Ulster rather than being “stuck in one place”.
Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane says he moved to French club Racing 92 because he needed a new “challenge”.
Pro14 boss Martin Anayi says that the South African teams taking part in the competition should be eligible for European Champions Cup qualification. You may also like
