The Springbok wing was hunted by Western Province and the Blue Bulls but decided to stay with the Cheetahs who gave him his first taste of Super Rugby after switching from sevens to the fifteen man code.

Hendricks made his successful debut earlier for the Springboks this year and made him a price position of the Cheetahs. Hendricks will be playing with Rhule and Le Roux at the back for the Cheetahs and makes a exciting back three for the Cheetahs.

The Cheetahs have also confirm the lost of Philip van der Walt (Biarritz) and Lappies Labuschagne (Bulls).

  1. For once Bekke, I agree. He would’ve been wasted at the Bulls and Province. He made his name playing for the Cheetahs, because he gets the ball. Stay there, better for your future

  2. It’s Corny & Willie left to man the siege walls at “The Vatican of SA Rugby”…….
    Cheetah Field.

    Against all odds & swarms of Hessians looking to stamp them out.
    Good on ya Corny!
    Meanwhile…..Pat Lambie enjoys his comfortable & predictable little nook in Durban – oblivious to the fact that with each day he spends there…..
    His career & test relevance is incrementally fading away.
