Dian Badenhorst

8th Aug 1996 1.70m/83kg Scrum Half

Dian Badenhorst has become the regular starting scrumhalf for the University of the Free State Shimlas of late in the Varsity Cup.

He is slowly but surely busy making the transition to senior provincial rugby, but he is competing for one of the most competitive jerseys in the entire Cheetahs squad.

Son of the Free State great and Springbok winger, Chris Badenhorst, Dian was certainly born with rugby in his blood, and will no doubt leave an impression on the region, just has his father did.

In 2018, Badenhorst played for the Toyota Free State XV in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge and also made a few appearances in the Currie Cup and PRO14.
