Cheetahs team named for semi


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

The Cheetahs team to face the Sharks on Saturday has been named.

Wing Lionel Mapoe is back from injury and will join Jongi Nokwe and Hennie Daniller in an exciting back three. JP Joubert comes back in for Tewis de Bruyn at scrumhalf, while Jacques-Louis Potgeiter is back at flyhalf after missing out against Boland last week.

The pack has a settled look. Coenie Oosthuizen is back on the bench after being pressed into service as a starting tighthead option last week – an experiment that was not wholly successful. WP Nel will be back in the number 3 jersey this week.

The Cheetahs have again opted to make do without a hooker replacement on the bench. Number 8 Ashley Johnson will take over in the middle of the scrum if required, with both Hendro Scholtz and Kabamba Floors named as loose forward reserves.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Lionel Mapoe, 13 Corné Uys, 12 Meyer Bosman, 11 Jongi Nokwe, 10 Jacques-Louis Potgieter, 9 JP Joubert, 8 Ashley Johnson, 7 Frans Viljoen, 6 Heinrich Brussuow, 5 David de Villiers, 4 Nico Breedt (capt), 3 WP Nel, 2 Richardt Strauss, 1 Wian du Preez.
Replacements: 16 Coenie Oosthuizen, 17 Izak van der Westhuizen, 18 Hendro Scholtz, 19 Kabamba Floors, 20 Tewis de Bruyn, 21 Louis Strydom, 22 Fabian Juries.

    ‘Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby.. If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.

    So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.’

    I prefer a bit more laid-back option…I loved living in Natal… :sad:

    (I dont think I will really make the Cape type weather- but I dont mind the odd visit) but if an opportunity arises – I will not say no either to a move to the mountains! Even a country girl like myself can fit in there! ;-)
