Cape Town - The Cheetahs have picked up promising former Western Province Under-21 and UCT loose forward Vincent Jobo for their Currie Cup campaign.

According to the supersport.com website, a good showing may even lead to a Super Rugby stint for the player nicknamed “the animal.”

Jobo had an impressive Varsity Cup last year and is one of the rising stars of Cape rugby. The decision to move to Bloemfontein for the Currie Cup is an excellent one for him as the former King Edward VII schoolboy has fought his way through the ranks and is now being rewarded for his form.

As a versatile loose forward who is equally at home at six and eight, the powerful loose forward is likely to make an impression after being given the opportunity.

The Cheetahs will be coached for the Currie Cup by Rory Duncan and Franco Smith, who are keen to bring their unique brand to the team after a patchy Super Rugby season.
