Springbok Pienaar reveals his future plans
CONTRACT NEWS: The World Cup-winning Springbok Ruan Pienaar has finally ended the retirement speculations.
According to OFM, Pienaar has signed a contract extension at the Cheetahs which will see him playing for the franchise until the end of October next year.
The 37-year-old, who has represented the Springboks in 88 Tests, revealed to OFM that he is not ready to call it a day.
“I’m quite a few years older than him, but I must say that I still enjoy waking up in the morning, training and all the challenges that come with preparing for games.
“As long as I have that and still have the enjoyment factor, I will go as long as I possibly can.
“Of course, you want to add value and still feel like when you play on a Saturday you are the best in your position.
“As long as I’ve got those things in place and I still enjoy it, then hopefully I can carry on playing a little bit longer.”
Cheetahs managed to lock in another incredible star in the form of Clayton Blommetjies.
The fullback also signed a year-long contract extension.
