After high school, Kruger moved to Bloemfontein to join the Free State Cheetahs. He made seven starts for the Free State U19 team during the 2012 Under-19 Provincial Championship, scoring tries in their matches against the Leopards U19 and the Golden Lions U19. Free State lost out on a semi-final spot in the competition, however, finishing in sixth spot.

In 2013, he made the step up to Under-21 level and played in ten of the Free State U21 team's matches during the 2013 Under-21 Provincial Championship. He again scored two tries – against eventual champions Western Province U21 in an 18–16 victory in the opening match of their season and against Sharks U21 – as his side once again missed out on the semi-finals by finishing fifth.

Kruger started the 2014 season by representing university side UFS Shimlas in the 2014 Varsity Cup. He made four appearances and scored against UJ in a 52–13 win as UFS Shimlas finished the competition in fifth spot. He started nine matches for Free State U21 in the 2014 Under-21 Provincial Championship and scored tries against Western Province U21 and in both of their matches against the Leopards.

He featured in their semi-final match against two-time champions UCT Ikey Tigers where Shimlas secured a 21–10 victory to help them qualify for their first ever final. He also started the final against the NWU Pukke as Shimlas ran out comfortable 63–33 winners to win their first ever Varsity Cup title.

Free State Cheetahs


Kruger was included in the Free State Cheetahs senior squad for the first time for the 2015 Currie Cup Premier Division and was initially named on the bench for their Round Two match against Western Province, but subsequently replaced by loose-forward Tienie Burger. He was again named on the bench for their Round Four match against the same opposition, but failed to make an appearance. He eventually made his first class debut on 19 September 2015 as he played off the bench in the Free State Cheetahs' 44–24 victory over Griquas. He made his first start a week later in their 31–73 defeat to the Golden Lions.
