sharks v cheetahs

The final game of the day has the old enemies facing off, while the Sharks should take the result out of this one the Cheetahs love nothing more than to spoil the party for the Durbanites.

The Cheetahs were dealt a cruel double blow this week with flyhalf Elgar Watts and robust 8th man Boom Prinsloo laid low by injury, Willie du Plessis and Neil Claasen will try and fill obvious void left by the former but will have to be at their utmost best.

Brad Macleod-Henderson has named Matt Stevens in his first starting role and will be hoping the experienced TH will provide plenty of grunt at scrum time. The Sharks have managed to win their last two fixtures with bonus points but their performances have not set the competition alight , the Cheetahs were more cohesive against the Griquas last weekend but will have to make a marked step to trouble the hosts.

Sharks – 15 SP Marais, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 S’bura Sithole, 12 Paul Jordaan, 11 Tonderai Chavhanga, 10 Fred Zeilinga, 9 Cameron Wright, 8 Tera Mtembu (c), 7 Francois Kleinhans, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Marco Wentzel, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Matt Stevens, 2 Kyle Cooper, 1 Dale Chadwick.
Subs: 16 Franco Marais, 17 Thomas du Toit, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Stephan Lewies / Johan Meyer, 20 Conrad Hoffmann, 21 Heimar Williams, 22 Lionel Cronje
Free State Cheetahs – 15 Clayton Blommetjies, 14 Rayno Benjamin, 13 Francois Venter, 12 Joubert Engelbrecht, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Willie du Plessis, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Jean Cook, 7 Neil Claassen, 6 Tienie Burger, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Carl Wegner, 3 Dolph Botha, 2 Torsten van Jaarsveld (c), 1 Kevin Stevens.
