Okay we are back on home soil again with a Saffa team involved so the interest in this game will be just that little bit higher.
I am sure our very own Hertford Highlander will be following proceedings very closely tonight.
This is actually a difficult game to call and I won’t be sticking my neck out at all. The Cheetahs could be on a high after their first away win since 2007 but the Highlanders are NEVER a pushover.
