Venter set to return for Cheetahs

Date published: May 3 2016

The Cheetahs have received a boost with the news that their captain, Francois Venter, is recovering well from a calf injury.

Venter was a late withdrawal ahead of his side's clash with the Reds in Brisbane at the weekend but after going for a scan to determine the severity of his injury, he is confident of returning to action against the Waratahs in Sydney on Saturday.

“I should be able to train fully with the team on Tuesday. I feel good,” he told Netwerk24 after the team arrived in Sydney.

The clash against the Waratahs will be the Cheetahs' final match of their Australian tour. They suffered losses to the Rebels and Reds in their previous matches.
