The Toyota Cheetahs centre, Howard Mnisi, is unscathed after a vehicle accident last week. Mnisi, who was en route back to Bloemfontein, rolled his car outside of Senekal after swerving for a guinea fowl.
The 30-year-old midfielder recently signed a two-year contract at the Cheetahs from the Southern Kings.
Mnisi, who previously also played Super Rugby for the Cheetahs and Currie Cup rugby for the Griquas, told Bloemfontein Courant that he did have a big scare, but he is fine.
“It was quite a big scare, but I have come out of it alright. I came out of the other end of it with no qualms at all.
“I’ve just started training now, and I just want to focus on what is happening here at the Cheetahs.”
The Cheetahs and other franchises were expected to start again with team training sessions on Monday. However, the frustration continues for the players and coaches as they are still awaiting the go-ahead from the government.
Meanwhile, one of the Cheetahs new signings tested positive for Covid-19 during their tests last week. The player has been isolated and hasn’t been in contact with any of the other players. – MORGAN PIEK
