'Specmagic' takes his x-factor back to the Cheetahs but will be available for the Olympics

Springbok Sevens stalwart, Rosko Specman, will make a return to the Toyota Cheetahs after signing a two-year contract at the franchise. This follows his time with the Bulls in Super Rugby.

Specman had previously played for the Cheetahs in 2017 and represented the team in seven Currie Cup and four Guinness PRO14 games.

A superstar on the Sevens stage, the fleet-footed player made an impact during his short stay at the Cheetahs, and will once again prove invaluable. Despite his size, he has proven to be a fearless player and is as dangerous in defence as well as in attack.

“It’s a great signing for us. He is a great team player, has a very good work rate, and has the x-factor that we all like and need,” said Coach Hawies Fourie.

“We are looking forward to having Specman join us in July. I am very happy to have him in our squad. It will just strengthen our back-three and the competition for a place in the starting line-up will be fierce. That is what I want. We want quality players with strong competition among the players in the squad. He will add a lot of spice to the competition.”

The speedster is also an Olympic medalist and was part of the South African team which claimed the bronze medal in the Rugby Sevens during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“The Toyota Cheetahs will allow Rosko to play for the Blitzbokke (Sevens team) in certain tournaments. He will be available for the Olympic Games in 2021 if he makes the squad.”

The 31-year-old Specman is grateful to re-join the team where he made a lasting impression during his previous stint in Bloemfontein.
