TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Boland wasted no time in adding new recruit Jacques Engelbrecht to their team for their return to the Currie Cup Premier Division.

Boland, who last played in the Premier Division in 2009, host the Free State Cheetahs in their opening match at Boland Stadium in Wellington on Saturday.

Engelbrecht, answering to the nickname Vleis, was signed from the Southern Kings and only given his clearance this week.

However, Horn is set to start from the bench for the Wellington side.

He represented Boland Under-21 in the 2005 U21 provincial championship.
