Cheetahs pick up another Bulls centre

Various media sources have confirmed the long-rumoured departure of Bulls centre Francois Venter to the Cheetahs. The former Junior Bok 12 will return to his native Bloemfontein in time for Super Rugby next year, where he is expected to come in as a straight replacement for the Montpellier-bound Robert Ebersohn.

It’s becoming something of a trend for the Cheetahs to pick up midfielders from their Pretoria rivals; last year they offered Johann Sadie a shot at redemption after his big-money move to the Bulls turned out to be nothing short of career suicide. Also announced earlier this year was the signature of Piet Lindeque, who despite his few loan appearances for the Sharks in Super Rugby was most recently contracted to the Bulls – or Tukkies, at the very least.

Lindeque and Venter, ironically, played together at Grey College where they were highly rated as a combination. It’s probably fair to say that neither has quite managed to capitalise on that junior potential as yet, but perhaps reunited as a pairing back in the town where their happiest rugby memories were forged, they could finally make the big step up.
