The Cheetahs have confirmed that centre Dries Swanepoel will be joining the club on a two-year contract.
The former Grey College pupil represented the Free State at the 2009 Grant Khomo Week and at the Cravenweek for u.18’s in 2011, and was vice-captain of the SA School’s side that same year.
Dries made his Currie Cup debut for the Blue Bulls in 2014 and represented the side in their Vodacom Cup, Currie Cup and Super Rugby campaigns.
He had a small taste of PRO14 when he joined Munster in April this year on a short-term loan as cover for injuries in the Irish club.
The centre will be joining the Cheetahs this week for training.
