The fourth and final match this Saturday takes us to Bloemfontein where the Cheetahs host the Western Force, who play their first of two games in South Africa.

The Cheetahs come off a narrow loss to the Highlanders last weekend, where they threw away a 21 point lead to lose it by three points in the end. They will be kicking themselves for losing that match, and the Force might just feel the after effects of that loss tonight.

The Force have been poor so far this season, not impressing and languishing in fifth in the already poor Australian log, and will want to keep the damage in this game to a minimum as they face the Sharks in Durban next weekend. Watch out for the Pocock vs Brussow battle at the breakdown.

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

Replacements: Hercu Liebenberg, Trevor Nyakane, Andries Ferreira, Ashley Johnson, Piet van Zyl, Riaan Smit, Philip Snyman.

Force: 1 Pek Cowan 2 Nathan Charles 3 Salesi Ma ‘afu 4 Toby Lynn 5 Nathan Sharpe 6 Richard Brown 7 David Pocock (Captain) 8 Matt Hodgson 9 Brett Sheehan 10 David Harvey 11 Napolioni Nalaga 12 Winston Stanley 13 Nick Cummins 14 Sam Wara 15 Alfie Mafi

Reserves: 16 Elvis Taione 17 Salesi Manu 18 Phoenix Battye 19 Lachlan McCaffrey 20 Josh Holmes 21 Ben Seymour 22 Rory Sidey

Referee: Stuart Berry
Assistant Ref 1:Craig Joubert
Assistant Ref 2:Stefan Breytenbach
TMO:Gerrie Coetzee

  • So once again a SA gang of officials manage to ensure a home town win against foreign opposition. Are these guys cheats or just incompetant? It was not long ago that we could boast as having a plethora of good refs/officials.
