Transfer News: Ruan Pienaar finds a new club

Springbok Ruan Pienaar has signed a two-year contract with the Cheetahs and will represent the franchise in the PRO14 competition.

Pienaar, 35, the son of Springbok legend Gysie, was born in Bloemfontein.


Pienaar, who made 67 Super Rugby appearances for the Sharks between 2005 and 2010, then made his way to Ireland where he represented Ulster on 141 occasions before moving to Montpellier in 2017.

Primarily a scrumhalf, Pienaar’s versatility saw him capped 88 for South Africa between 2006 and 2015.
