Three Cheetahs players have reportedly agreed to join Jake White at Toyota Verblitz at the conclusion of the current Pro14 season.
According to Netwerk24 and OFM, locks Carl Wegner and Reniel Hugo and utility back Clinton Swart are set to miss Free State’s Rugby Challenge and Currie Cup campaigns this year because they will leave for Japan immediately after the Pro14.
While Hugo and Swart are expected to return to the Cheetahs after one season in Japan, Wegner’s departure will reportedly be permanent.
Meanwhile, Cheetahs flank Uzair Cassiem has been linked with a move to Toulon, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
