S14 ’09 Game 3 – Lions (34) v Cheetahs (28) F/T

The first derby match in the 2009 Super 14 sees the Cheetahs trek to Johannesburg to take on the Lions.

This is the third year of Eugene Eloff’s three year plan and he will feel the pressure of having to show some results this season. On the flipside of the coin it seems as if there is very little pressure on Naka Drotske and his team to do well as it is a well publicized fact that they are the “poor cousins” of the SA Super 14 franchises.

Will the Lions’ plan start taking shape? Or will the Cheetahs show that money isn’t everything?

Venue: Coca Cola Park, Johannesburg
Kick-off: 19.10 SA time

Referee: Craig Joubert (South Africa)
ARs: Phillip Bosch (South Africa), Joey Salmans (South Africa)
TMO: Johann Meuwesen (South Africa)

Cheetahs:
15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Danwel Demas, 13 Corné Uys, 12 Jacques-Louis Potgieter, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Meyer Bosman, 9 Tewis de Bruyn, 8 Frans Viljoen, 7 Juan Smith (c), 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 David de Villiers, 4 Nico Breedt, 3 Bees Roux, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Wian du Preez
Replacements:
16 Richardt Strauss, 17 Kobus Calldo, 18 Wayne van Heerden, 19 Hendro Scholtz, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Fabian Juries, 22 Piet van Zyl.

Lions:
15 Louis Ludik, 14 Ashwin Willemse, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Henno Mentz, 10 Earl Rose, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Franco van der Merwe, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Gerhard Mostert, 4 Anton van Zyl, 3 Gert Muller, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Heinke van der Merwe.

    Enterprising stuff from the Lions from a scrum on the halfway line and making a couple of breaks with Henno being bundled out 2m from the tryline.

  • 4 minutes – Cheetahs make it into the Lions half for the first time. But Lions running at them drive them back to their 22. J Smith penalised for playing ball on the ground. Lions don’t kick. Although I am not sure if that is long or short arm anymore.

  • 28:00 The pace of this game is frenetic! Vermaak was the catalyst there but Willemse takes it from the 10m line and manages to keep Demas off until the last second as he rolls overs next to the posts. Rose converts.
