Sias Ebersohn (born 23 February 1989 in Bloemfontein, South Africa) is a rugby union player from South Africa. He currently plays for the Western Force. He has also played for the South Africa U20, Free State Cheetahs and finally made his Super Rugby break-out for the Toyota Cheetahs in 2011, as he became the first choice flyhalf (no.10). His twin brother, Robert, also plays for the Cheetahs.[1][2][3]

Ebersohn Twins[edit]

The Ebersohn Twins (Sias and Robert) are the sons of Tiaan Ebersohn, a center who played for the Free State and Western Province.[4][5] The twins were born and raised in Bloemfontein, South Africa and schooled at Grey College. Here they climbed the ranks and eventually presented the Free State schools team at the national Coca Cola Craven Week. Fame came fast as they were chosen to present South Africa at the IRB Junior World Championship. Both players were quickly grabbed into the Free State Cheetahs rugby squad.[6]

They consider themselves a package deal, as they've been playing side-by-side from school level.[7][8][9]
