Cheetahs name strong team

Captain Juan Smith is named on the bench as the Cheetahs name their team to take on the Reds.

One by one the teams in this year’s competition are cottoning onto the “dual fetcher” approach and the Cheetahs are no different. Darron Nell, ineffective as a loose forward under the new laws, has been dumped with Heinrich Brüssow and Hendro Scholtz selected to play in tandem on the flank. Smith’s return to the bench means Nell is out of the 22 altogether.

Barend Pieterse comes back in for David de Villiers at lock and there’s a return for JW Jonker at outside centre at the expense of Hendrik Meyer.

Cheetahs Team:

Hennie Daniller; Eddie Fredericks, JW Jonker, Meyer Bosman, Jongi Nokwe; Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Tewis de Bruyn; Duanne Vermeulen, Hendro Scholtz, Heinrich Brüssow, Barend Pieterse, Rory Duncan (capt), CJ van der Linde, Adriaan Strauss, Wian du Preez.

Richardt Strauss, Bees Roux, David de Villiers, Juan Smith, Falie Oelschig, Conrad Barnard, Hendrik Meyer.

  • Is Potgieter young and inexperienced? Wouldn’t it have been better to play him at 12 with Bosman flyhalf?

  • The Cheetahs pack looks good… it’s the backline that looks like a workshop full of journeymen

  • Potgieter has been one of teir few standouts in the backline, along with Daniller. I wouldn’t play Crusty ahead of the latter at this stage.

    Cab, you are spot on. Smith either needs to replace Vermeulen or come in at lock

  • The Cheetahs are overrated here in SA.

    Nearly none of their players represent the Boks and each year (in recent years) they are competitive at CC level cos they are nearly always at full strength.

    As long as you’re not suggesting a semi-final berth. Mind you, the Cheetahs have done well to accumulate 6 points after 7 matches with ZERO wins. If they can get a draw somewhere they could end the comp on 14 points in as many matches.

  • I tipped the Cheetahs to take this one and have a first win in 2008. They had a good game against the Tahs and they cant having any more bad luck for the next two years. They should outplay the Reds in the first phase, its only the defense that let them down. I also gatvol with the Reds for their bitching about the 16 men and they sound like losers, now even moaning about the Cheetahs having 16 men in the Farce game.

  • The silent fart

    An elderly couple was attending church services, about halfway through
    she leans over and says to her husband, ‘ I just let out a silent fart
    what do you think I should do?’

    He replies ‘ Put a new battery in your hearing aid.’
