Demas to join Cheetahs in 2009 Currie Cup

Boland Kavaliers winger and Springbok Sevens star Danwel Demas will turn out for the Cheetahs next season. This was confirmed by Boland team manager, Denver Pienaar.

“He already signed the contract. “Yes, it is bad news for us. But what could we do?” Pienaar asked.

Demas’ departure is big blow for Boland as he and Deon Scholtz were earmarked to become a potent winger combination next year.

Meanwhile, the Boland’s exodus to the Free State Cheetahs continues. It all started two seasons ago when Boland head coach Hawies Fourie became the Cheetahs’ backline coach.

After that, several Bolanders followed him to Bloemfontein. They were fullback Hennie Daniller, scrumhalf Tewis de Bruyn, winger Jongi Nokwe and lock David de Villiers.

Recently Boland also lost tight head prop, Jean Botha, to the Cheetahs. He will join the Free State team after the promotion/relegation matches.

And after Boland’s gutsy performance against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday, more Kavaliers could get a Bloemfontein call-up.
