    Cape Town - The Cheetahs have confirmed the signing of promising Pumas scrumhalf Shaun Venter on a two-year deal.

    Venter, 26, was loaned to the Kings for this year's Super Rugby competition where he caught the eye of many a rugby pundit with his slick service and astute tactical game.

    According to the Volksblad website, he will return to play for the Pumas in this year's Currie Cup First Division, before joining the Cheetahs on November 1 for two years.

    He will replace Springbok scrumhalf Piet van Zyl who recently signed with the Bulls.

    Venter, Sarel Pretorius and Kevin Luiters - who recently also extended his stay until the end of 2014 - will be the Cheetahs' scrumhalves in next year's Super Rugby competition.

    Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské expressed his joy in signing Venter.

    "The yardstick for any player to see if he will make it is Super Rugby. (And) Shaun showed this year that he can do it. We are excited about his future at the Cheetahs and believe he can go far in his career," said Drotské.

    EXPERT OPINION

    “The Sharks as SA’s lone playoffs side for the first time in Super Rugby’s conference format is a fair possibility, warns Rob Houwing.”

    Opinion Poll

    While the Sharks look like sure winners of the SA Super Rugby Conference, the "battle" for the wooden spoon could well develop into a four-team race. Who eventually props up the table?
