Super Rugby side the Emirates Lions confirmed the signing of winger Rabz Maxwane from the Toyota Cheetahs.

According to local reports, Maxwane joins the Johannesburg-based side side on a two-year deal until the end of the 2022 season.

Maxwane’s contract with the Bloemfontein-based franchise expired in June ending his three-year stay with the club. He had been signed to replace Makazole Mapimpi who had joined the Sharks.

Maxwane had previously struggled at the Blue Bulls but had a breakthrough at the Cheetahs where he finished as the leading try scorer in the 2018/2019 Guinness PRO14 season. His haul saw him equal the Guinness PRO14 try record of Scotland winger Tim Visser for Edinburgh Rugby.

The 24-year-old also won the 2017 Varsity Cup title with University of Pretoria (Tuks) for whom he scored eight tries.
