Lood de Jager and Francois (Swys) Venter are two of the stalwarts who showed their “metal” for the Toyota Cheetahs and donned the coveted Green and Gold as Free Staters.
A full list of Free Staters who earned national colours, is published in a book entitled Cheetahland: 125 jaar se lief en leed (initially only in Afrikaans), which will be available by mid-year at a price of R400.
It also contains the names and statistics of each of the 1 611 players who represented the union, as well as the results of each and every match that the union played in 125 years.
The book, written by Mr Statistics, Frikkie van Rensburg and published by Free State Cheetahs (Pty) Ltd, will cost about R400.
Only 1 000 copies will be printed, so it is important to mail us your name, the number of books you want to order and your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
