HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY, SCHALK FERREIRA!

Happy 40th birthday to the Toyota Cheetahs’ prop, Schalk Ferreira.

You might think he’s the first oldest player to still be playing to the Cheetahs at this age? Well, he’s the third one!

  • Pinky Hill played his last game when he was 41 years old (1882-1924)
  • Charlie Kohler played his last game when he was 40 years old (1892-1932)
  • Schalk Ferreira is still playing for the Toyota Cheetahs and he just reached 40!

Ruan Pienaar will be turning 40 years old this year, following the likes of Sakkie van Zyl, Chris Geel, and Dougie Heymans!
