    Cape Town - Former Sharks lock Steven Sykes has joined the Cheetahs squad as they prepare for the Super Rugby competition.

    According to Netwerk24, it remains unsure if Sykes has signed a contract with the Cheetahs or just training in Bloemfontein on a trial period.

    Sykes will compete for a spot in the Cheetahs' Super Rugby team with the likes of Lood de Jager, Francois Uys, Carl Wegner and Armandt Koster.

    Hilton Lobberts is struggling with a knee injury and it's unsure if he'll play Super Rugby this year.

    Sykes, 30 represented the Sharks between 2005 and 2012. He also played for Irish club Leinster in 2011 and was contracted with the EP Kings since 2013.

    The Cheetahs open their 2015 Super Rugby campaign when they tackle the Sharks in Durban on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).
