Cheetahs' Britz to play in Japan
Cape Town - Cheetahs loose forward Willie Britz is set to join a Japanese club after this year's Super Rugby competition, Netwerk24 reports.
The good news for Cheetahs fans though is that Britz will only be unavailable during the Currie Cup, before returning to play Super Rugby next season.
He is contracted to the Cheetahs until the end of the 2016 season.
Two other Cheetahs players - flank Heinrich Brussow and centre Johann Sadie - also have an agreement which allows them to return from Japan to play Super Rugby.
