The dramatic footage shows Cassiem, in full kit, and his wife dancing in slow motion to classical music on the Parc y Scarlets pitch.

“Saying farewell, the only way I know how…,” Cassiem said in the Twitter post.

“It’s been an amazing 3 years with so many memories that I get to treasure.

“You all have been so welcoming to my family and myself. I can’t thank you enough for that.

“Diolch Scarlets! You all are one of a kind!”

Capped eight times in 2016 and 2017, he started out with the Lions in Johannesburg and played a handful of games for them, while also making three appearances for their Gauteng neighbours the Falcons.

He then moved to Nelspruit and made 70-odd appearances for the Pumas, before joining the Cheetahs where he made 50 appearances and became a Springbok.

In 2018 he joined Scarlets and will move across the channel to France, where he has signed for Bayonne.
