The Cheetahs’ regular injury curse has started to set in in earnest this week and the home side will be without a number of stalwarts.

Vodacom Cup players in Ashley Jonson, Bjorn Basson and good old Skipper Badenhorst are suddenly finding themselves thrust into the Super 14 limelight in Bloemfontein and without their pair of start wingers, Jongi Nokwe and Lionel Mapoe, it’s hard to see the Cheetahs as anything other than cannon fodder for an in-form Reds side.

Ref: Vinny Munro (New Zealand)
ARs: Chris Pollock (New Zealand), Cobus Wessels (South Africa)
TMO: Shaun Veldsman (South Africa)
Venue: Vodacom Park, Bloemfontein
kick-off: 19h10 SA Time, 17h10 GMT

Cheetahs: 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Danwel Demas, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Meyer Bosman, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Naas Olivier, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Ashley Johnson, 7 Juan Smith (captain), 6 Hendro Scholtz, 5 Waltie Vermeulen, 4 Nico Breedt, 3 WP Nel, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Wian du Preez.
Replacements: 16 Skipper Badenhorst, 17 Coenie Oosthuizen, 18 Barend Pieterse, 19 Kabamba Floors, 20 Tewis de Bruyn, 21 Corné Uys, 22 Wilmaure Louw.

Reds: 15 Peter Hynes, 14 Luke Morahan, 13 Digby Ioane, 12 Anthony Faingaa, 11 Brando Va’aulu, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia (captain), 8 Leroy Houston, 7 Jake Schatz, 6 Scott Higginbotham, 5 Van Humphries, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Laurie Weeks, 2 Saia Faingaa, 1 Ben Daley.
Replacements: 16 Sean Hardman, 17 Greg Holmes, 18 Adam Byrnes, 19 Ezra Taylor, 20 Ben Lucas, 21 Will Chambers, 22 Rod Davies.

  • Two of the most inconsistent teams in the competition, should be an interesting game. I do feel the Reds have too much for the tahs, although they did beat the canes in bloem when not many ppl gave them a chance to

  • Looking forward to seeing how Basson goes!!

    He looks a decent prospect. Can’t believe Demas is ahead of him in the packing order!! :???:

  • @wpw (Comment 7) : yeah, i dont rate demas as a 15s player, very good 7s player though, apparently basson has had some personal problems this year and has been off-form because of that, i hope he goes well today, there was talk of him joining the bulle to replace habana, obviously did not happen

  • Geeeee this Reds side just gets better and better everytime i look at it.

    Digby at Centre makes them look stronger still……with Chambers and Rocket Rod on the bench.

    I’m cheering for the boys in Orange….for my own selfish reasons.
