He has signed a two-year contract.

Specman made his name for the Cheetahs in 2017 and represented the team in seven Currie Cup and four Guinness PRO14 games, before heading to the Bulls for a chance to play Super Rugby.

Cheetahs coach Hawies Fourie believes that the return of the fleet-footed Specman is a coup for the franchise. 

"It's a great signing for us.  He is a great team player, has a very good work rate, and has the x-factor that we all like and need," said Fourie. 

"We are looking forward to having Specman join us in July. I am very happy to have him in our squad. It will just strengthen our back-three and the competition for a place in the starting line-up will be fierce. That is what I want. We want quality players with strong competition among the players in the squad. He will add a lot of spice to the competition," he added.

The Cheetahs also confirmed that they will allow Specman to turn out in certain Sevens tournaments for the national side.

"The Cheetahs will allow Rosko to play for the Blitzbokke in certain tournaments.  He will be available for the Olympic Games in 2021 if he makes the squad," confirmed Fourie.
