Dave Williams has been appointed as the Cheetahs new backline and attack coach.

Williams was an assistant coach for the Kolbe Steelers in Japan, coached in England at London Irish and Bath, and was also the backline and coach coordinator for the Kings.

Rory Duncan is head coach of the Cheetahs, with Corniel van Zyl as forwards coach and Charl Strydom as defence coach.
