Pienaar joins the Cheetahs


Ruan Pienaar will make a return to Ulster after agreeing to join Guinness PRO14 side the Cheetahs on a two-year deal.

Pienaar spent seven years at Ulster before leaving in 2017 but he had been linked with a return to Kingspan Stadium after securing his release from French outfit Montpellier following the death of his sister in a car crash.

However, he has opted to return to his native South Africa, signing a two-year deal to join the Cheetahs, who are in Conference A of the Guinness PRO14 alongside Ulster and Leinster.

“The Free State Cheetahs is delighted to confirm the signing of former Springbok scrum-half, Ruan Pienaar, who wishes to further his rugby career in the Free State,” a statement read.

The Guinness PRO14 returns to eir sport for the 2019-20 season with up to six live matches a week. Subscribe here
