The Toyota Cheetahs managed to negotiate its participation as a fifth franchise in a Super 8 competition, with additional income.
The four metro franchises were voted in to participate in the PRO16 competition in Europe.
According to Harold Verster, Managing Director of the Free State Cheetahs, the Cheetahs reserve their rights.
The implications of the business model have to be assessed and the board will decide on the way forward.
The local competitions are exciting and offer a good prospect because of the fact that it is a competition that all fourteen South-African franchises will be taking part in after which a Currie Cup double round, home and away, will take place with all eight teams.
Free State Rugby will review all implications and thereafter determine the way forward.
