Cheetahs loosie confirms Japan move
Cape Town - Cheetahs loose forward Willie Britz has confirmed that he will join the Shining Arcs in Japan after this year's Super Rugby competition.
This comes after Sport24 reported last week that Britz would be joining a Japanese club.
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.
Britz confirmed the news via social media on Wednesday.
