  • Cheetahs not playing the best rugby of their season. If this is how they going to play in the play-offs they’re going to get a hiding. Come on Cheetahs get your heads in the game!!!!!

  • Perhaps I’m being too harsh, but none of our sides really played good rugby today. Don’t think the 3 week test break did any one any good.

  • It hurt’s me to say but the Bulls looked the best of all the SA sides. Cheetahs looked almost “scared” of losing their chance of a play-off spot that they forgot to play.

  • @JD (Comment 4) : We’ll see how well they do now that the pressure is on and everyone is EXPECTING them to win.

    As for the Bulls, they’re good at doing what they do, which is mostly the very basics being well executed. Didn’t see today’s game, but for the most part, their winning rugby is still not very entertaining.

    Hopefully the Sharks will make it their pursuit to not compromise on either.

  • Bulls looked good (beter when Olivier left). They ran a lot more but kicking still forms big part of their game. They looked very solid and in play-off mode. Will take a much beter performance from the Sharks if they want to beat them!!!!

  • The Cheetahs could just find that the weight off expectation can be crushing.
