The only local game for this Saturday sees the Cheetahs host the Highlanders in Bloemfontein. The Cheetahs come off their first bye weekend while the Highlanders kick off their tour to South Africa.

The Cheetahs have had a week off following their loss to the Chiefs, and will be fresh to kick off their second half of the tournament with a win against the New Zealanders. Sias Ebersohn drops back to the bench to make way for Baby Bok flyhalf Johan Goosen, with Tewis de Bruyn getting a start ahead of the younger Piet van Zyl. Amongst the forwards, Ashley Johnson is again on the bench and is sure to make an impact off the bench.

The Highlanders are currently lying in second spot on the New Zealand conference, after a tight win over the Blues last weekend. Their match against the Cheetahs will be their target four points as they face the Sharks in Durban next weekend. Ben Smith returns to starting line-up, with Tamati Ellison shifting into the midfield in a backline shuffle.

Cheetahs: Hennie Daniller, Cameron Jacobs, Robert Ebersohn, Andries Strauss, Willie le Roux, Johan Goosen, Tewis de Bruyn, Philip van der Walt, Justin Downey, Heinrich Brüssow, Izak van der Westhuizen, Andries Ferreira, WP Nel, Adriaan Strauss (captain), Coenie Oosthuizen.

Replacements: Hercu Liebenberg, Trevor Nyakane, George Earle, Ashley Johnson, Piet van Zyl, Sias Ebersohn, Philip Snyman.

Highlanders: 1 Jamie Mackintosh (C,) 2 Andrew Hore, 3 Chris King, 4 Josh Bekhuis, 5 Jarrad Hoeata , 6 Adam Thomson, 7 James Haskell ,8 Nasi Manu, 9 Aaron Smith, 10 Mike Delany, 11 Hosea Gear, 12 Shaun Treeby, 13 Tamati Ellison, 14 Buxton Popoali’i, 15 Ben Smith

Reserves 16 Jason Rutledge ,17 Ma’afu Fia ,18 Culum Retallick, 19 Doug Tietjens ,20 Jimmy Cowan, 21 Chris Noakes, 22 Siale Piutau

Referee: Mark Lawrence
Assistant Ref 1:Sindile Mayende

    How many times did they re-show the punch on Downey. He got what he deserved. He was playing the guy illegally and he took exception and “explained” to Downey why he shouldn’t do it in future.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 63) : nope, cant agree with that one. No place for punching in rugby – especially if the guy on the receiving end bound in the maul. I like the guys clanging into each other hard, but there is a line between hard and dirty.

    Thought Haskell had a brilliant game until he did that.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 65) : The guy on the receiving end was not bound on the maul he was illegally “bound” on Haskell. Yes Haskell’s response was over the top, but Downey will have learnt an important lesson.

    If something needs to be stamped out it is the illegal off the ball stuff that goes on. This was one such occassion. Haskell was retaliating not instigating.

    PUNCHING IN RUGBY IS ILLEGAL. I would think as a ref you would know that.

  • @robdylan (Comment 71) : As a player I know what it feels like to be illegally interfered with and the ref not seeing it and I also know the frustration that goes along with being powerless to do anything about the guy interfering with you. As a ref I know to punish anything illegal that I see.

    I’m not saying what Haskell did is legal. And if you look above (Comment 63) you will see I agree with him being punished, but let’s not make Downey out to be an angel in this. They both did something illegal just because Haskell is the one who threw the punches doesn’t make him the only villian.

    If you look for shit and you get it then you mustn’t complain just because the guy gave you a whole lot more than you bargained for. As a scrumhalf who would niggle players and then get the odd good thump for my troubles, I know how Downey’s pride must feel. I just hope he takes it like a man and realises the Haskell was retaliating to what Downey was doing. As a kid I was taught if I pulled the dog’s tail it was eventually going to bite me, the dog would get a smack for biting me but I knew it wasn’t the dog’s fault.

    Rob, the fact that you are related to Downey is giving you an unobjective reaction to this.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 72) : Reminds me of a dvd I watched. “Rugby’s biggest hits” by James Dalton. The Boks were playing Wales I think and they were close to our line. The Welsh lock kept tugging at Kobus Wiese only for him to get knocked out cold a couple of seconds later.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 72) : bullshit. I would react exactly the same way if he had hit Coenie Oosthuizen, the other player who was holding him… to whom I’m not related and whom I can’t stand.

    there’s gamesmanship and there’s common assault. It’s this macho “take it like a man” crap that tends to blur those lines.

  • This is kinda a double edged sword. Would you call a guy who assassinates someone who has stolen millions a hero or a murderer. It all depends on your point of view. They were both in the wrong, so I say Downey got what was coming to him, and if Haskell gets the book thrown at him, he gets what was coming to him as well.

  • @robdylan (Comment 82) :

    Will be interesting to see what happens to Haskell ….. it seems like he will cop a ban but i think it will be minimal was he even looking at Downey when he hit him.

    I look back at the big open hand cheap shot from the Sharks Doctor in the Hurricanes game that set of a full scale brawl that resulted in just about ever player on the field either throwing or being hit by a punch ……yet no one was was found guity of anything……. how does that work? :???:

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 84) : I’m surprised they’re taking so long in deciding the Haskell case… generally these things are done and dusted within 24 hours of the incident.

  • Sharks definitely won’t mind Haskell being banned – he was quite a handful on the park. Was it him or the other flank who threw that beautifully weighted pass that the winger ran onto?

  • I didn’t watch the game, so if I understand this correctly, Downey “got what he deserved” cos he was illegally bound? Is that par for the course now?

    So in sentencing mitigation argument will include that he got what he deserved and learnt a valuable lesson?

    I’m not too attached to either team, but just find the logic interesting.

  • One can not justify a red card offense as a retaliation for a simple penalty offense he could have like most payers use his forearm to hit the guys hand binding him illegally. If he got the red card as suggested by the asst ref then no citing would be needed or as severe.bottom line all players uses tactics to distract players,if you loose control and through a punch,even if provoked you should be punished
