The 22-year-old Dian Badenhorst has become the regular starting scrumhalf for the University of the Free State Shimlas of late in the Varsity Cup.He is slowly but surely busy making the transition to senior provincial rugby, but he is competing for one of the most competitive jerseys in the entire Toyota Cheetahs squad. At this stage, Badenhorst is an understudy to Tian Meyer, Shaun Venter, and Rudy Paige, while he also has to compete against the likes of Ruben de Haas and Zee Mkabela for the number-nine jersey.As the son of the Free State great and Springbok winger, Chris Badenhorst, Dian was certainly born with rugby in his blood, and will no doubt leave an impression on the region, just has his father did.In 2018, Badenhorst played for the Toyota Free State XV in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge and also made a few appearances in the Currie Cup. Due to the unavailability of Rudy Paige for the Guinness Pro14 tour to face the Cardiff Blues and Edinburgh, Badenhorst was included in the squad.
