Sean Everitt has kept pretty much the same squad that beat the Griquas at home to travel to Bloemfontein to face the Cheetahs on Wednesday.

Jonny Meyer starts at tight head in place of Michael Kumbirai; Manie Libbok and hard working Werner Kok swaps places with Jordan Chait and Thaakir Abrahams respectively.

The last time the Sharks visited Bloemfontein they received a 27-point spanking – so the young Sharks will have their work cut out for them.

  • Abrahams does look am exciting prospect, would have kept kok om the field, based solely on his work rate

  • Sharks trying to play a high paced game which suits the Cheetahs who leads 21-7

  • Cheetahs players passing and running lines just too good for the Sharks to handle. 28-7

    This could get really ugly

  • But Mchunu is giving the opposing tight head a hard time – another Beast in the making

  • To be fair Kumbirai is now holding his side up while Mchunu causes the damage

  • Players will need to do better at completing their tackles – too many Cheetah players allowed to spin out of tackles

  • A Steyn penalty wins the game for the Cheetahs by 1 point. Good comeback from the Sharks after looking like the Cheetahs will run away with the game

  • Unlucky sharks. Moral victory to the boys. More tries and a sharks b team against the best the cheetahs have. Great fight back by a young bunch. Good character shown.

  • Funny watching Hawies celebrate the win as if it proved something.

  • @byron (Comment 16) : Yeah, that was pretty weak as a penalty. Of penalties though, I think the cheetahs got a free lunch whenever Sharks on attack. The cheetahs were not as good as gold, their offside line was bad and was infrequently penalised.

  • @SeanJeff (Comment 19) : Marius van der westhuizen, always blind when it comes to offside lines

  • Gotta be proud of the boys here, coming back after being down and hit, and losing on a debatable penalty. Have to take the positives and build on. Cheetahs in Bloemfontein are never easy, but the young lads didn’t back down. Encouraging for the future.
