Former Cheetahs flyhalf Sias Ebersohn has retired from all rugby to pursue his interest in farming.
The 28-year-old’s last match was for the Pumas in their Currie Cup match against the Sharks last year.
Ebersohn, whose twin brother Robert plays for Castres in the French Top 14, told Netwerk24 that he has bought a farm in Hartswater in the Northern Cape.
‘Farming was just a dream for me for a long time. But then my appendix burst and I was in hospital for a while, so I decided then that it was time for me to start a farm.
‘I saved up for a while. I bought the farm in April, and in November I decided to start farming.’
Ebersohn played a total of 30 games for the Cheetahs in Super Rugby, before moving to the Force, where he earned 43 caps between 2013 and 2015.
