Cheetahs in attacking mode

2012-07-06 14:21

Bloemfontein - The Cheetahs will not be in defensive mode for their last Super Rugby home game of the season against the Stormers at Free State Stadium on Saturday.

The home side, according to Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske, will run on to the pitch with the intention of throwing everything but the kitchen sink at a Stormers side that pride themselves on solid defence.

"We want to attack from the get go, but if that doesn't work then we will switch to plan B and start kicking the ball around," Drotske said.

"That's what we will do if we don't gain any momentum from our attack."

Drotske's side are playing for pride, while seeking momentum for the Currie Cup competition.

The Stormers, meanwhile, are in the running for a place in the knockout stages of the competition and will go all out against the Cheetahs.

Aiming to close out the group stage at the top of the combined Super Rugby conference, the visitors will go in search of a bonus point.

"We've been highly motivated for the past 14 weeks," said Stormers coach Allister Coetzee.

"It's all about creating a winning culture within the team. We want to continue that against the Cheetahs."

Stormers captain Jean de Villiers said the Cape outfit were prepared for a tricky Cheetahs side.

"We know that the Cheetahs can be unpredictable but we're better off concentrating on what we want to do," De Villiers said.

"We will be prepared to expect anything from them and in the end it all comes to how well we execute our game plan.

"They have a lot to play for since they could record their best Super Rugby season this year."

    Go Cheetahs! You've got the support of the majority of the nation.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 14:30

      What you want to say is 99.9%... Just those bunch on the Berg would be rooting for the other team(can't recall their name.).

      bloudaan.blou - 2012-07-06 14:32

      I was trying to be discreet, Charlie.

      theuns.pretorius - 2012-07-06 14:40

      maak jy grappies? ai tog. die ou bulletjies is soo bang om vir 'n derde keer hierdie jaar teen die stormers te verloor... hulle sit maar hulle hoop op die arme cheetahs. Kan die ou goedjies seker nie kwalik neem nie. Shamepies

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 14:45

      Theuns is jy n Stompie???

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-06 14:55

      Charlie it's kind of obvious. The little maggot supports a team who hasn't won anything for generations, hence the miserable attitude.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 14:59

      Aaaa well such is life... We where there before, O no sorry didn't we win it in....lol

      david.dick.3979 - 2012-07-06 15:11

      paul.sdoow - 2012-07-06 15:50

      just cause you got a thick head Harold don't mean you the majority? can't wait to see the lions put the bulls in place. shame the bulls have field full strength side three weeks in a row . once you lose later us stormers can relax and rest for last match if we want to. o befor i forget . . GO SHARKS.

      schalk.j.lubbe - 2012-07-06 16:25

      Check all the bulls again commenting first on the report... And like always their defence will be that we havent won anything in 11 years why are we making any noise... what i wanna know is IF/WHEN we win that cup come end S15 - What will their defence be then? probably tell us to win it 3 times? and WHEN we have it 3 times - what will their defence be then, probably that they did it first...

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-06 16:34

      Spot on, Schalk.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 16:38

      Schalk get the first one first and when you get the 3rd one we will see but for now... Ja go win a S15 cup first ok....

      henk.jacobs.39 - 2012-07-06 17:42

      But Schalkie, we did do it first buddy! We also won it twice FIRST and also won it 3 times FIRST. All you need to do is pray that your team doesn't choke like ALWAYS!

      anwar.addinall - 2012-07-06 21:06

      Groot bekke.............can't even beat the sharks!

  • cape.maori - 2012-07-06 14:29

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-06 14:40

      Thanks Cape, but I've been here the whole day. Keeping an eye on procedings.

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 14:47

      @Harold - you mean "proceedings".

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-06 14:58

      Tomato potato.

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 14:59

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 15:53

  • bloudaan.blou - 2012-07-06 14:30

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 14:32

      @Groot Daan - Jy bedoel seker 'n "verrassing".

      bloudaan.blou - 2012-07-06 14:35

      nico.eksteen.7 - 2012-07-06 15:23

      Verasing soos in visaas (bait). Jy`s reg, die Stormers gaan hulle vreet.

  • bulla.loftus - 2012-07-06 14:41

    Cheetahs gaan die visvoete "hammer" die naweek! Hiedie naweek gaan die papsak en snoek verkope af wees na die pak slae wat hulle gaan kry... Cheetahs by 10

  • grant.butler.104 - 2012-07-06 14:45

    If Sharks win tonight Stormers will be able to basically go for broke tomorrow....kick penalties into corners, etc and try and get the 4 trys at any and all costs....have to try and top the combined log boys! Go for it!!

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 14:53

      Something that only happens in Dreams at Newland i suppose...

      bulla.loftus - 2012-07-06 15:16

      That would be awesome for them, but it will not happen, as the stormers will be too focused on defense due to the cheetahs running everything at them.

  • theuns.pretorius - 2012-07-06 14:48

    ons is laang jare se droogtes deur.... maar stormer sal ek bly...

      cape.maori - 2012-07-06 14:53

      Ou seun, die droogte gaan nog vir laang jare aanhou! Jy is in elk geval daaraan gewoond!

      bloudaan.blou - 2012-07-06 14:59

      @theuns.pretorius Ai my maat, ek kan dink hoe jy moet voel. Ons Bulle is nou al meer as een jaar sonder ons beker. Se my, hoelank is julle Stormers al sonder n beker daar in die Kaap?

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-06 15:01

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 15:16

      bulla.loftus - 2012-07-06 15:17

      Jy beter opstock met die papsak, daar kom nog erger droogtes.... Ek sien kamele....

      Tommy - 2012-07-06 15:22

      2002 - Bulls most defeats in season. Selective memory?

      Pietskiet - 2012-07-06 15:27

      @caravan?bulls? This a rugby site. PS Stay away from booze

      henk.jacobs.39 - 2012-07-06 18:00

      Dear Mr Jones. After most defeats in a season we won it 3 times...character is the first word that springs to mind. We can actually say we've been through it all. From the "droogtes" to the lekker "vet jare". We've seen it all baby. What can you say: "We've made it to the finals and frigging choked again"!!! You think it's in the bag, well, the Cheetahs are hungry!

  • nico.eksteen.7 - 2012-07-06 15:08

    Stormers gaan 5 puntjies vat daar by die cheaters môre. Don`t know what to say about the guppies/pienkkoeie match. The supporters of these 2 teams are so despicable that one wishes that both lose.

      lean.sadie - 2012-07-06 15:13

      Maybe wouldn't say so. Just the trolls on this site. Does not mean they are all like that. I Know real bull and shark fans, and none of them are as childish as the ones on here. Best is to just ignore them. If nobody comments back, they will eventually leave. Stop feeding the trolls, they will starve. Pretty simple.

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-07-06 15:37

      No cups. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!

      sharksfever.sharks - 2012-07-06 15:48

      Nico, I hope you are not too blind to see what your own fellow supporters comment on these forums. So don't make it a Sharks and Bulls thing. Its all of us and yes some of the guys get carried away and it gets a bit much but I have also had allot of laughs with the things okes come up with. Plus we a bunch of okes and a few ladies I am sure can take the banter. If someone can't take it go to the supersport blogs. These Sports24 blogs are for animals.

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-06 18:39

      Well said Sharksfever... Think LEAN needs to go to that Supersport site... He always complain... so sick of it...

  • James Parker - 2012-07-06 15:50

    Sharkies please show those inbreds how to play rugby tonight. These koeie think they still playing on their daddy's farm. You're in the shark tank tonight.

      henk.jacobs.39 - 2012-07-06 18:06

      Picture the Nando's ad..........I think you don't realize the Inbreds won it 3 times! (guy holds out three fingers and mouths) 3....

  • LaBlue - 2012-07-06 16:04

    Uh huh ... And how did that work out against the Bulls?

  • nelly.skosana.5 - 2012-07-06 17:35
