The opening match of the second round of Currie Cup action for 2012 sees the Cheetahs hosting a confident Bulls outfit in Bloemfontein.

The Cheetahs have opted for an almost brand new team following their disappointing loss to the Lions last weekend, with a new halfback combination in Sarel Pretorius and Sias Ebersohn. Sias will want to make the most of what little playing time he will get this season, as Johan Goosen is almost back in the selection fray.

The Bulls team is largely unchanged, with a single injury enforced replacement in the loose trio, and they will want to continue in the same vein as they finished their first round match against Griquas.

I suspect the Bulls will have too much confidence going into this match, and the Cheetahs will struggle to find their groove after all the changes.

Free State Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Riaan Smit, 13 Robert Ebersohn (captain), 12 Barry Geel, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Kabamba Floors, 7 Pieter Labuschagne, 6 Frans Viljoen, 5 Izak van der Westhuizen, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Marcel van der Merwe, 2 Hercu Liebenberg, 1 Trevor Nyakane.

Replacements: 16 Elandré Huggett, 17 Schalk van Merwe, 18 Francois Uys, 19 Davon Raubenheimer, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Philip Snyman, 22 Nico Scheepers.

Blue Bulls: 15 Jürgen Visser, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Ulrich Beyers, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Clayton Blommetjies, 10 Louis Fouché, 9 Ruan Snyman, 8 Dewald Potgieter (captain), 7 CJ Stander, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Cornell Hess, 4 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 3 Frik Kirsten, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Dawie Steyn.

Replacements: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 Grant Hattingh, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Lohan Jacobs, 21 Lionel Cronjé, 22 Jan Serfontein.

  • Do we have any fair commentators. I am tired of listening to Hugh Bladens bias towards the bulls, he is a south african aussie.
