Cat fight in Jo’burg

The Cheetahs travel to Johannesburg today to face the Lions.

Position 5 playing position 6 on the log would usually be a recipe for disaster, but this may actually be a more than half decent match. A few weeks ago I would have gone with a comfortable win for the Cheetahs. With the sudden improvement in form from the Lions and the loss of Juan Smith for the Cheetahs, we may actually see a hard fought result with some entertaining rugby on display.

I have my concerns about the ability of this referee to handle what is going to be a hard fought match.

  • Willa, as much as I love anybody beating the Cheetahs, I don’t believe you guys have the forwards to take them today. Hope I’m wrong, though!

  • Thanks Chaz.

    Rob, think the loss of Pieterse and Smit might even up the pack a bit today. Weve got the better backline.

    So here’s hoping.

  • The Lions are all over the Cheetahs. half time stats should be interesting.

    Cheetahs will have tackled almost double the lions’ number, IMO.
