The Cheetahs finish their tour of Australasia with a Dunedin meeting against the Highlanders.

The Highlanders have 1 win from 5 this season while the Cheetahs have had even worse luck and are sitting winless at the bottom of the log.

Will the Cheetahs finally get lucky just before they finally come home?

Or will it be the Highlanders who show that the win over the Crusaders 2 weeks ago was anything but luck?

  • Potgieter struggles to clear his lines and the Highlanders have an attacking line-out just about 10 metres out.

    The Highlanders drive it up and Adam Thomson is over for the first try.

  • Cheetahs scrum five metres out from Highlanders line.

    Reset scrum.

    The Highlanders clearly have the upperhand in the scrums. Knock-on and the Highlanders win a scrum

  • Cowan kicks ahead and Hennie Dabiller hacks it back.

    The Highlanders can’t control and Corne Uys picks up the loose ball and sprints 40 metres for the Cheetahs’ first try.

    Daniller makes a strong run in midfield and they take it through the phases. But Demas is driven back in the tackle and the Highlanders turn it over.

  • The Highlanders win a penalty for a high tackle and they opt for a line-out.

    Bowden grubbers and the Cheetahs can’t control it.

    Israel Dagg dots down and the call goes to the TMO – he rules it is a try.

    The Cheetahs are slipping off a few tackles now.

    Bowden breaks through in midfield and the Cheetahs have to scramble.

    They give away a free kick and also get a dressing down from the referee.

  • seeing that there is only you and me online, i’ll admit. i like kaplan. i just find he allows players to enter from the side. he also seems to have a little thing against the sharks. some of it is justified though as muller does seal off the ball and kaplan hates that.

    I wouldn’t want to make the call between the two of them.

    BOTH manage games excellently.

    Lawrence used to have a propensity for producing cards willy nilly. (am glad that is not the case anymore)

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 37) : yes but as seen with the tough defences, cards don’t lead to runaway scores, so i would like to see more used. i am sick of the breakdowns being such a mess.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 39) :

    George Naoupu busts through the Cheetahs’ lacklustre defence and hands off to Steven Setephano, who first crashes into the upright and then rolls over the line.

    The call goes to the TMO, who says the try is good.

    Berquist adds the conversion

    Highlanders 20 – 8 Cheetahs

  • @try time (Comment 40) :

    I am talking from the days when Lawrence was still refereeing CC and VC games. He has come a loooooong way since then.

    The breakdowns are a mess because SANZAR S14 decided to have inbred ELVs rather than world ELVs.

    Giving only a FK away for infringing on the ground is something I would expect an ignoramous to come up with.

  • @try time (Comment 57) :

    No. Cards screw the match-up up.

    PK players for infringing on the ground like the rest of the world does and they will stop doing it. Only giving away FKs has the players conditioned to doing it and not being too concerned about the consequences and that then leads to a ref saying “F^&*k you guys “I’LL” clean the breakdown up.”

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 59) : cards will only be used as long as the players cheat. coaches will soon train their players to do things the right way. currently look at who the ref is , they know what he doesn’t penalise and they cheat as much as they can. use cards more the players will soon clear up the breakdowns creating a beautiful game to watch.
