Brussow leaving Cheetahs

Date published: May 22 2015

The Cheetahs will lose Springbok flanker Heinrich Brussow at the end of the season after ten years with the franchise.

The 28-year-old will not sign a new deal with the side according to Netwerk24, focusing instead on his Japanese side, the Docomo Hurricanes, who are popular in sports betting markets.

Brussow joined the Japanese club in 2013 but returned to play Super Rugby for the Cheetahs.

However it seems he has played his last game for the Cheetahs after deciding he will not return next year, and with an arm injury ruling him out of the rest of the season.
