Our Super Saturday of Six Super Rugby matches gets under way with the Hurricanes hosting the Cheetahs in the early morning game. I suspect most will only read this once the game is done, seeing as we love nothing more than a sleep in.

The Hurricanes are fresh off a win over the Blues last weekend, and after a shaky start to the season, have done better than most have expected from them. They will go into this match targeting nothing less than four points, which will keep them in touching distance of a play off shot.

The Cheetahs are on the last leg of their four week tour, and will be ready to get on a plane once this match is over, after four gruelling weeks, but will be happy as they have gone close in both matches that they lost, pushing the Crusaders last weekend would be a highlight for them.

Hurricanes: 15 Andre Taylor, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith (captain), 12 Charlie Ngatai, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Brad Shields, 7 Karl Lowe, 6 Faifili Levave, 5 Jason Eaton, 4 James Broadhurst, 3 Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, 2 Dane Coles, 1 Tristan Moran.

Replacements: 16 Motu Matu’u, 17 Michael Bent, 18 Mark Reddish, 19 Jack Lam, 20 Chris Eaton, 21 Daniel Kirkpatrick, 22 Jayden Hayward.

Cheetahs: 15. Hennie Daniller, 14. Rayno Benjamin, 13. Robert Ebersohn, 12. Andries Strauss, 11. Willie Le Roux, 10. Johan Goosen, 9. Piet van Zyl, 8. Heinrich Brussow, 7. Philip Van der Walt, 6. Justin Downey, 5. Izak van der Westhuizen, 4. George Earle, 3. WP Nel, 2. Adriaan Strauss (Captain), 1. Coenie Oosthuizen

Replacements: 16. Hercu Liebenberg, 17. Trevor Nyakane, 18. Andries Ferreira, 19. Ashley Johnson, 20. Tewis de Bruyn, 21. Sias Ebersohn, 22. Philip Snyman
