The Last game of the weekend’s opening round of the ABSA Currie Cup will be the Steval Pumas taking on the Cheetahs in Nelspruit.

Steval Pumas vs Cheetahs

The Pumas was most impressive last year in the First Division and qualified for the ABSA Premiere League through two promotion relegation matches against the last placed Griquas team who ended last in the Currie Cup.

The step up to Premiere league will be a huge adjustment for the Pumas as they would have seen from last night game from the Western Province and EP Kings game.

The Cheetahs will want to start with a away win and this should be and interesting game for both teams.

    Story in Die Burger: Cheetahs are in deep shit
    with a group established to take the blazer guys
    on.
    Strauss left because they would not have an
    independent group looking into the union.
    Harold Verster?

    law 19 Definitions

    A player in touch may kick or knock the ball, but not hold it, provided it has not
    crossed the plane of the touchline. The plane of the touchline is the vertical space
    rising immediately above the touchline.

    One has to complement the referees for knowing the finer points for the laws to the tee.

  32. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:

    @Timeo: Yes do not know how many people actually knew that law, even Nick said he did not know about it
