Cheetahs to attack Waratahs

Bloemfontein - The Cheetahs want to adopt an attacking approach on their tour of Australia and New Zealand, starting with this weekend’s clash with the Waratahs.

They have not been able to achieve much on attack this year, but would like to use their first match on tour in Sydney on Saturday to change that.

The return of wing Jongi Nokwe and fullback Hennie Daniller from injuries will certainly boost the Cheetahs’ attack.

Cheetahs coach Hawies Fourie told Sport24 that they had a long meeting about tactics on arrival at their hotel in Coogee Beach.

“We’d like to improve our attacking play. We will kick a lot less, unless circumstances demand otherwise,” said Fourie.

“We have to attack more and keep the ball in hand. That will be our approach in the next four games on tour. We’d like to build more phases and score four tries per game.”

The Waratahs were fortunate to beat the Blues in Sydney last weekend.

The home team secured the victory in the dying stages with an intercept try by wing Lachie Turner. However, the visitors showed that the Waratahs’ defence is vulnerable, something the Cheetahs will look to exploit.

Nokwe’s sheer pace will certainly be a valuable commodity in the Cheetahs' bid for more tries.
