CC Game 46 – Cheetahs (25) vs Lions (25) F/T

The first of the Currie Cup action this Super Saturday sees the Cheetahs host the Lions in a cat fight that can either stretch a lead at the top of the table for the Lions or continue a great climb up the ladder for the Cheetahs.

The Cheetahs have continued with their selection of Johan Goosen at flyhalf after the youngster won Currie Cup player of the month for September, and I am sure he will continue in the form he has been in, as he faces off with another young talent in Elton Jantjies.

The Lions have unceremoniously dropped scrumhalf Rudy Paige and welcome back Michael Bondesio to partner Jantjies in the halfbacks, and have not selected a scrumhalf on the bench, with Francis, Kamama and Des Fountain making up the backline reserves.

This match should be quite entertaining and will be a big blow to the losing team. Kick off is at 15h00.

Cheetahs: 15. Hennie Daniller, 14. Rayno Benjamin, 13. Robert Ebersohn, 12. Philip Snyman, 11. Cameron Jacobs, 10. Johan Goosen, 9. Piet van Zyl, 8. Ashley Johnson, 7. Philip Van der Walt, 6. Pieter Labuschagne, 5. Izak van der Westhuizen, 4. Francois (FS) Uys, 3. Coenie Oosthuizen, 2. Adriaan Strauss (Captain), 1. Marcel Van Der Merwe

Replacements: 16. Hercu Liebenberg, 17. Trevor Nyakane, 18. Wilhelm Steenkamp, 19. Boom Prinsloo, 20. Tewis de Bruyn, 21. Sias Ebersohn, 22. Andries Strauss

Lions: 15. Jaco Taute, 14. Deon van Rensburg, 13. Doppies la Grange, 12. Alwyn Hollenbach, 11. Michael Killian, 10. Elton Jantjies, 9. Michael Bondesio, 8. Joshua Strauss (Captain), 7. Derick Minnie, 6. Cobus Grobbelaar, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Michael Rhodes, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Bandise Maku, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg

Replacements: 16. Martin Bezuidenhout, 17. Jacobie Adriaanse, 18. David Bulbring, 19. Warren Whiteley, 20. Burton Francis, 21. James Kamana, 22. Dylan Des Fountain

  • Jonker only gives a PK for playing the man while on the ground. On the replay it is clear that Bondesio had no option but to make contact as he was going arse over kettle at the time and had no control of his legs.

    Goosen slots the PK

    Goosen won the young flyhalf battle while he was on, but Jantjies was very good, except for his goal-kicking.
