TRANSFER NEWS: Jacques du Toit revealed that he will leave the Cheetahs at the end of the Currie Cup season.

The 25-year-old, who made his debut for the Cheetahs in 2014, confirmed the news via an Instagram post.

In the post, Du Toit admitted that his decision to exit Bloemfontein side was highly motivated by his lack of game time in the starting line-up.

Mixed feelings is the only way I can describe how I’m feeling. I’m really excited about heading into my second Currie Cup final with the Cheetahs. It will however be my last week with the team before joining the Southern Kings for the next Pro 14 season. I’ve been involved with the Cheetahs for almost 5 years, excluding my 3 years as a junior and what a roller coaster it’s been. Bloemfontein is the place where I was born, raised, married and became a dad. It’s also where I trained and played my heart out every chance I got. I’m not someone who often speaks about myself or my setbacks because I would rather focus on the positive things in life. Although I have enjoyed my time at the Cheetahs there were some tough times too. Not being selected for the team and dealing with long term injuries are things that many young sports people have to face. We connect our worth team selection and winning matches and we feel devastated when our name is not called or when we lose. I haven’t had the opportunity to wear the starting jersey as much as I would have liked, but I had to make a choice that my attitude and my worth was connected to my purpose and my faith. So if I play 80 minutes or sit on the bench for 80 minutes, my goal is always to keep on working towards the person and the player God created me to be. Ready to give it my all this week 🙏🏻 I’m leaving it all on the field By God’s grace #newbeginnings
