CONFIRMED: Cheetahs bolster squad with four players from Wales

NEWS: The Cheetahs and Ospreys have revealed the next stage in their player development partnership.


On Tuesday, the Cheetahs confirmed the arrival of four Ospreys players in Bloemfontein.

They have joined the Cheetahs on a short-term loan, bolstering the squad for the upcoming weeks and making themselves available to play for the team in the SA Cup.

The quartet comprises Tristan Davies (loose forward/lock), Lewis Rhys Jones (lock), Will Hickey (loose forward), and Cameron Jones (loosehead prop), all of whom bring unique skills and experience to the team.

“This collaboration exemplifies the spirit of cooperation and mutual support that defines our partnership with Ospreys,” says Ross van Reenen, CEO of the Cheetahs.

“By sharing talent and resources, we strengthen both our teams and enrich the rugby experience for players and fans alike.”

This exchange, initiated in late 2023, has already proven fruitful. Previously, Cheetahs players Dan Kasende, Marnus van der Merwe and Rewan Kruger ventured to Wales.


Evardi Boshoff, Jeandré Rudolph, and captain Victor Sekekete joined the Ospreys in February.

Jeandré and Victor have returned in time for the recent EPCR Challenge Cup Round of 16 match against Clermont in France, while Evardi remains in Wales until the end of May.
