Battle lines drawn for Ebersohn, van Zyl

Despite assurances form Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske that he is confident both Rob Ebersohn and Piet van Zyl will accept the contract extensions in front of them, both players are being strongly linked with an exit from Bloemfontein.

Ebersohn is believed to have agreed a move to Montpellier in France, one which he subsequently got cold feet about when receiving a belated Springbok training camp call-up. That pendulum seems to have swung back the other way now, though. Heyneke Meyer has made it rather clear that the likes of Jan Serfontein and JJ Engelbrecht are next-in-line at centre, leaving Ebersohn, we understand, to attempt a hasty resurrection of his French plans. I would imagine there would be some “stuff” to sort out on that side, given the way in which the initial agreement was reneged upon, but the smart money seems to be on that move happening nevertheless.

Van Zyl, on the other hand, appears to be a Bulls target, with the Pretoria union looking at him to replace the departing Jano Vermaak. There’s obviously no confirmation of this, but it’s likely that they are offering him significantly more than the Cheetahs can match, making a move likely.
