The Cheetahs and the reds will both be hoping for a first win in Brisbane today.

The Reds have returned from a less than successful road trip to South Africa and will be hoping to start their campaign at home with a bang.

The Cheetahs have also not been at home this season and will be trying their best to make use of what must be their best chance at a win on the road.

Who will win the right to live in the dungeon?

    The Reds are attacking the Cheetahs half, unfortunately their handling let them down with Cooper knocking on 5 metres out from the Cheetahs 22, scrum to the Cheetahs.

    The Reds are taking the Cheetahs on at their own game, upfront, they relinquish possession and De Bruyn sends them back, however the ball is not out and the Reds run it again and kick out to set up a line out five metres out from the Cheetahs goalline.

    The Reds dominate possesion and territory but can’t convert the advantage into points, the Cheetahs’ defence holds firm. Higgenbotham knocks the ball on in the Cheetahs 22, another scrum to the visitors.

    The Reds attacking play finally pays off as McLinden scores his first try in the Super 14 in the right hand corner after good inter play by forwards and backs.

    Cooper attacks the advantage line, making good ground, he passes to Houston who knocks it on. The Cheetahs counter via Bosman, but a good tackle by Lucas on Juries stops the Cheetahs progress.

    The Cheetahs have a line out in the Reds half they win it via De Vlliers, they let it through the hands, but Ioane picks up the the loose ball at a ruck and runs 60 odd metres to score a try in the left hand corner.

    Higgenbotham kicks the ball out in his 22 under pressure from Scholtz, he clears it and the Cheetahs win the line out. The Reds are blown for knocking the ball down in the maul. Potgieter kicks the ball directly into deadball area the Reds get a 22 drop out.

    Pretorius is penalised for offside at the scrum and Cooper sends the Cheetahs back into their 22, the Reds have an attacking line out which they win through Humphries. They progresss towards the Cheetahs goalline through good attacking play by Connor, Ioane loses the ball in the tackle.

    A cross kick by Barnes towards the Cheetahs goalline is a tad too hard and Connor misses out on a scoring chance.

    Daniller kicks ahead and chases, Ioane gathers and brushes off an attempted tackle by Daniller, he runs 30 metres. The Reds are on attack again.

    Finally a break for the Cheetahs, as Cooper is penalised for a ‘no-arms’ tackle on Daniller.

    Time is beginning to run out for a Cheetahs comeback, as they have to take more and more risks against a Reds team now full of confidence and looking likely to record their first win of the season.

    Houston makes an awesome break from the ruck and sets up another Reds atack in the Cheetahs 22, he passes to Braid who gets the ball away to Ioane he passes to Genia who knocks it on in the tackle.

    The Cheetahs are getting desperate now and even though they get the ball to flyer Jongi Nokwe, the cover is too quick. The Cheetahs put it on the boot, but Hynes returns the favour and the visitors remain pinned inside their half.
