Former Ikeys and Western Province prop Chris Heiberg has signed a deal to play for Australian Super Rugby franchise, the Force.
The hard running prop can play at both tighthead and losehead and joined UCT in 2010 and played in the Varsity Cup and league that year. His 2011 season was cut short with a knee injury, but he returned strongly in 2012 and got an opportunity to play for WP in 2013. He will join the Perth side on October 1.
Heiberg (pictured in action against WP / Stormers), played in this year's Vodacom Cup and was also on the Stormers' bench for their last two Super Rugby matches against the Reds and Kings, but didn't get game time.
Chris will be in Australia until the end of the 2016 season.
He will join fellow South Africans Wilhelm Steenkamp and Sias Ebersohn and of course former Ikeys coach Kevin Foote.
