TRANSFER NEWS:  With Sergeal Petersen and Raymond Rhule well on their way to Western Province, Cheetahs managed to fill the void with two new exciting signings.

Western Province Craig Barry and Griquas captain Adriaan Coertzen are set to join the Bloemfontein side on November 14 on a short-term loan agreement.

Coertzen, the talented 27-year-old wing and fullback, played an integral role in the Griquas' Currie Cup campaign and his presence promises to bring excitement and great value to the side.

Meanwhile, Varsity Cup star Barry, who made his Currie Cup debut for Western Province against the Free State Cheetahs this year, will add loads of versatility to the backline.

This exceptional leader and good communicator made the Junior Springbok squad in 2011 and captained the Varsity Cup Dream Team and Western Province for a couple of games in the 2017 SuperSport Challenge.

The players will be on loan from Griquas and Western Province until the end of May.
