NEWS: The Cheetahs have decided to release injury plagued Johannes 'Boom' Prinsloo of his contract to pursue new opportunities.

According to the South African media, Prinsloo has signed a two-year contract with the Bulls. However, nothing has been confirmed by Cheetahs or Bulls.

Prinsloo represented the Cheetahs in 50 Super Rugby and the Free State Cheetahs in 30 Currie Cup matches.

He had been in Bloemfontein for 10 years and has represented Free State at Under-18 in 2007, U19 in 2008 and U21 in 2009 level and he made his Currie Cup debut against the Leopards in Bloemfontein on July 16, 2011.

He became a more physical player while playing in the SA Sevens side during 2010-2012 seasons.

He made his Super Rugby debut for the Cheetahs against the Sharks in Durban on July 14, 2012.

However, due to a shoulder injury, he only played two matches in 2012.

In 2013 he played in 12 Super Rugby matches and in 11 Currie Cup and lead the team in nine matches as captain.

In 2014 Prinsloo was one of the star players in Super Rugby (14 matches), but, a groin injury sidelined him for most of the Currie Cup season.

The loose forward played in 16 Super matches during 2015 and a jaw injury only allowed him to play four Currie Cup matches.  

Prinsloo was injured after playing in the first six Super Rugby matches in 2016, which sidelined him for the rest of the year.  He returned to play for his 50th Super Rugby cap against the Bulls on March 4, 2017.
