This one, I’m afraid, can only go one way.

The Cheetahs’ injury woes continue to mount and depth has never been a particularly strong suit for the central franchise anyway. They have been forced to pick a side so chock-full of journeyman that even Ryno Barnes will now be able to add Super 14 rugby to his CV. It’s a pretty sad indictment on poor old Skipper Badenhorst that he still can’t get a start, even with this lot!

The Blues are still theoretically in this one, of course and if they can rack up BIG bonus point wins here and in Joburg next week (a formality), they might just be in with a shout of fourth spot heading into the final week. They certainly won’t lack motivation for this fixture.

    I read somewhere that the Cheetahs will be playing in Welkom today.

    I have just switched on the TV and they ARE playing in Welkom but it is the FS Cheetahs playing the Kavliers.

    WTF is there a VC game on and not the S14 match??????????
