Centre Howard Mnisi has completed a move to the Cheetahs from the Southern Kings.

The deal was confirmed by the player's representatives on Monday morning, with the Cheetahs later confirming that he would join them on 1 July on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old had been on the Kings' books since 2019, having played Super Rugby for the Lions between 2015 and 2018.

Before that, he made a name for himself at Griquas (2013-14) and also played Super Rugby for the Cheetahs in the same period.

In 2016, Mnisi played for the SA 'A' team against an England Saxons touring team and was tipped by many for higher honours.

However, injuries at crucial junctures in his career curtailed his hopes for Springbok recognition.
