Super Rugby 2012 – Cheetahs (19) vs Bulls (51) F/T

The first of two South African derbies this afternoon/evening takes place in Bloemfontein, where the Cheetahs take on the Bulls.

The Cheetahs lost in the last few minutes last weekend, with the Lions scraping home, at home. They have had to shuffle the backline a bit as Andriess Strauss was suspended following his spear tackle, with Philip Snyman replacing him. There is also a run on debut for Willie le Roux on the wing.

The Bulls beat the Sharks in the opening round, and will welcome back vice captain Wynand Olivier to their backline to replace the injured Johann Sadie.

I reckon this match will go close, as they almost always do between these teams, with the Bulls sneaking it through the boot of Morne Steyn.

Cheetahs: 15. Hennie Daniller, 14. Rocco Jansen, 13. Robert Ebersohn, 12. Philip Snyman, 11. Willie Le Roux, 10. Johan Goosen, 9. Tewis de Bruyn, 8. Davon Raubenheimer, 7. Philip Van der Walt, 6. Heinrich Brussow, 5. Izak van der Westhuizen, 4. Andries Ferreira, 3. WP Nel, 2. Adriaan Strauss (Captain), 1. Trevor Nyakane

Replacements: 16. Hercu Liebenberg, 17. Lourens Adriaanse, 18. Waltie Vermeulen, 19. Ashley Johnson, 20. Piet van Zyl, 21. Sias Ebersohn, 22. Cameron Jacobs

Bulls: 15. Zane Kirchner, 14. Akona Ndungane, 13. Wynand Olivier, 12. Francois Venter, 11. Bjorn Basson, 10. Morné Steyn, 9. Francois Hougaard, 8. Pierre Spies (Captain), 7. Jacques Potgieter, 6. Deon Stegmann, 5. Juandre Kruger, 4. Flip van der Merwe, 3. Werner Kruger, 2. Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1. Dean Greyling

Replacements: 16. Willie Wepener, 17. Frik Kirsten, 18. Wilhelm Steenkamp, 19. CJ Stander, 20. Jano Vermaak, 21. Louis Fouche, 22. JJ Engelbrecht

  • No Sharks thread yet so will post here before we go out soon.

    Sharks biggest worry today will come from Mark Lawrence if he blows like he did in last weeks game against Cheetahs and Lions.

    Hoping Bissie and Keegan have the discipline stamped all over them today. If they had kept the discipline last week we probably would have won. With Lawrence there today the penalties will come fast and furious. Discipline and more discipline for today is needed. If we keep the discipline today even with our light loose trio and our locks that don’t really match Stormers we could still win this thing.

    Keeping fingers crossed our lineouts are better today.

    GO SHARKS ……. :smile: :cool:

    RED CARD issued after consultation with the AR Rueben Rossouw if there was any reason NOT to give a red card.

  • @Culling Song (Comment 81) :
    He also isn’t too comfortable in heavy traffic and on defence. And that’s what you need from a Test-level, or SR-level, flyhalf.

    But the big boot, drop-kicks and speed of the mark could prove useful from the back.
