De Haas Joins Cheetahs First Team

Ruben de Haas is moving up in the world. The young American scrumhalf has signed with the Cheetahs in the Pro 14 through October 2020. De Haas is extremely familiar with the Cheetahs having been a member of their Academy side for the last couple of years. He's played at the U-19 level as well as for the Free State XV in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge. Currently de Haas is with the Eagles getting ready for their summer tour. De Haas is originally from South Africa but immigrated to the U.S. in 2009. His father and grandfather both played for the Cheetahs.

The Cheetahs finished third in Conference A in their first season in the Pro 14 last year. That was good enough for a playoff spot although they fell to the Scarlets in the first round.
