NEWS: The Free State Cheetahs will be coached by Rory Duncan in this year's Currie Cup tournament.

The directors of the Free State Cheetahs (Pty) Ltd. decided to replace Franco Smith with the Director of Rugby Duncan after the former was appointed as one of the assistant coaches of the Springbok team earlier this year 

Smith will still be the head coach of the Cheetahs for Super Rugby.  

Smith will, however, be available as advisor and consultant to the Free State Cheetahs team during the Currie Cup 

Free State Rugby said they were not taking the Currie Cup lightly and felt it was necessary to appoint a senior coach in this position for the competition.  

Duncan was the head coach of the Free State Cheetahs for the 2014 Currie Cup season. 

MJ Smith, the current coach of the Free State XV and the Free State Cheetahs Under-21 side, is promoted to backline coach of the Currie Cup team to fill the gap that Franco Smith will leave.

The rest of the coaching staff will remain the same.
