In a weekend with two top six clashes and another top six team on a bye, there are bound to be a few non-event matches, with the previous game and now this match not really having a bearing on the bigger picture.

The Cheetahs have struggled to win a match and even though they put together good performances and run teams close, like the Stormers last weekend, they just cannot manage to close a game. Will they be able to beat the Waratahs at home? They should, but will they actually care?

The Waratahs welcome back Drew Mitchell, who will play his first rugby match in nearly a year, and will be keen to score some tries again. This is the first of two matches in South Africa for the ‘Tahs, and one they will be planning on winning.

Cheetahs: Hennie Daniller, Rocco Jansen, Robert Ebersohn, Andries Strauss, Willie le Roux, Riaan Smit, Piet van Zyl, Philip van der Walt, Ashley Johnson, Heinrich Brussow, Andries Ferreira, Izak van der Westhuizen, WP Nel, Adriaan Strauss (captain), Coenie Oosthuizen.

Replacements: Hercu Liebenberg, Trevor Nyakane, Francois Uys, Justin Downey, Tewis de Bruyn, Sias Ebersohn, Philip Snyman.

Waratahs: 15. Bernard Foley ,14. Tom Kingston ,13. Rob Horne ,12. Adam Ashley-Cooper ,11. Drew Mitchell ,10. Berrick Barnes (VC),9. Brendan McKibbin ,8. Wycliff Palu ,7. Chris Alcock ,6. Dave Dennis ,5. Kane Douglas ,4. Sitaleki Timani ,3. Sekope Kepu ,2. Tatafu Polota-Nau ,1. Benn Robinson (c)

Replacements:16. John Ulugia ,17. Jeremy Tilse ,18. Richard Stanford ,19. Lopeti Timani ,20. Sarel Pretorius ,21. Daniel Halangahu ,22. Tom Carter

Referee: Craig Joubert
Assistant Ref 1:Sindile Mayende
