    Another week of predictable pathetic tackling by the Cheetahs and turnover tries!

    If they could just tackle they’d be unbeatable!

    The Cheetahs of old. Running, fast paced and shitty defense.

    Good heart though to stay in it and win it in the end.

    What do you mean? If they end up better than the Lions they’re still in right? It would really suck if the Cheetahs got bounced.

    How was Messherschmit-Willie LeRoux in the game????????

    Got myself to watch the “highlights”
    which were very poorly strung together
    with lots of buggerall happening.
    Seems the aim is not to entertain and
    produce a decent package, but to fill
    airtime.

    Cheetahs should start fining players that
    miss regulatory tackles, of which there
    were plenty.

    Anyway, for a team without locks the
    Cheetahs did well.
    Now if they can get Johnson to be a link
    instead of just fooking ahead . . .

    He’s made some key off-loads in the tackle (albeit far a few between)…

    As for the high-lights… if they cannot edit that down to be entertaining they should be send back to film-school

    Or pay someone to teach them how.

    Dunno if you saw it, but it was very
    poorly strewn together.
    Saving time and money in the edit suite,
    filling airtime cheaply with a substandard
    product.

    One only has to head straight to youtube where arm-chair fans put together fantastic highlights in a few minutes…

    Jip, if you have genuine broad band and
    unlimited access to the internet.

    We used to cut 25 min packages of a game,
    with even the place kicks neatly edited
    down to 15 sec.

    Fantastic come-back by the Cheetahs but not really a fantastic game at all. Too much poor defence to be called good rugby.
