Bloemfontein - Cheetahs coach Rory Duncan has named his squad for their upcoming tour to Europe.

The Cheetahs will play two PRO14 games - against Italian side Zebre in Parma (October 28) and Irish side Connacht in Galway (November 4).

Wing Raymond Rhule and utility back Sergeal Petersen will play their final game for the Cheetahs against Zebre this Saturday, before returning to South Africa where they will join up with their new franchise, the Stormers and Western Province in Cape Town.

The Cheetahs announced that the duo will be contracted to the Cape franchise from November 1.

After a tough start, the Cheetahs have found their feet in their first season of PRO14.

Six rounds of fixtures into the competition, they find themselves in third position in Conference A with three wins and three losses.

The group stages of the PRO14 will run until the end of April next year.

The Cheetahs squad will depart for Italy on Tuesday.
