      bloudaan.blou - 2012-06-27 11:38

      The previous game it was Bulls - 51 Cheetahs – 19 And this time the Bulls will take the game again comfortably :-)

      orrinf8 - 2012-06-27 11:55

      with NO kicking points on offer for the bulls (well done Morne), they are gonna have to run in a lot of tries .. HOWEVER .. i just don't see that happening against this CHEETAHS outfit, they have a point to prove to your beloved heineken AND THE NULLE ARE GONNA BEAR THE BRUNT OF IT !! GO CHEETAHS, GO :)

      harold.lloyd.520 - 2012-06-27 12:03

      Albert, how long did it take you to to come up with that?

  • sean.bagley.50 - 2012-06-27 11:25

    Given the emphatic damage that Brussow's ability at the breakdown can cause,I'm looking forward to seeing him in action this weekend.

  • marcus.daily3 - 2012-06-27 11:26

    Sias should've started! What a "missed" opportunity to see him and Steyn go at it.

  • actanonverba.daniels - 2012-06-27 11:30

    Don't think the Cheetahs has the best chance. They do however have nothing to loose and the Bulls need to secure their play off spot. Maybe the Cheetahs can pull it off, I like their rugby more. Go Cheetahs!

      japjapjap.wat - 2012-06-27 19:02

      Ek moet se', di vrystaan span lyk vir my wit warm?? ek dink di wedstryd gaan baie baie nader aan mekaar wees as di vorige een en wat mense dink dit gaan wees?? ek hoop my Bulle doen dit en doen dit goed!

  • lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-06-27 11:31

    Cheetahs by 5 points:): Coenie would have made a massive difference.

      bloudaan.blou - 2012-06-27 11:40

      @Lionel Dink nie die gaan vir die Bulle maklik wees nie maar ek kan nie dink dat hulle op Loftus gaan verloor nie, nie teen die Cheetahs nie :-)

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-27 11:41

      Bulls by 17

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-06-27 11:46

      @Daan,eerlik te wees,ja ek stem julle gaan te sterk wees. Soos ek gese het miskien as Coenie daar was was dit n ander storie Sterkte vir die game

      bloudaan.blou - 2012-06-27 12:04

      @Lionel Jy is doodreg, Coenie sou n verskil gemaak het. Ons sal maar moet wag en kyk ...!!!

      nathan.davies.1257 - 2012-06-27 12:38

      Without Coenie and Goosen I don't think the Cheetahs will have enough to win.

  • ltjvrensburg - 2012-06-27 11:45

    Swak besluit deur die cheetahs om Johnson te speel, hy gaan dan weg die einde van die seisoen. Hulle moes eerder vir Downing gespeel het om die 6,7,8 kombinasie vir die currie beker en volgende jaar te vestig.

      ltjvrensburg - 2012-06-27 11:47

      o en dis nou tyd vir Brussouw om sy game om te tel sodat hy in form kan wees vir die bokke en natuurlik we gekies word.

      peter.britz1 - 2012-06-27 12:52

      CJ Stander gaan ook weg, en die bulle het hom gekies. So what? Sias gaan ook weg. Jy speel tot op die laaste

  • grantcg - 2012-06-27 12:30

    Very strong and exciting cheetahs team across the board, but not too sure why Philip vd Walt isn't in the 22..he has been one of the best forwards in the super 15 this year, and has sevens experience/pace. Marcel is a huge player, standout in SA under 20's side few years back. Go Vrystaaat!

      peter.britz1 - 2012-06-27 12:53

      Phillip vd Walt is nursing a slight injury that has been bothering him. He is being given a chance to rest

      Johan - 2012-06-27 13:36

      Philip vd Walt has a foot injury and had to be rested for 6 weeks. Only 2 weeks to go. Have been playing with it for a while now. Dont worry Labuschagne is good! Go Cheetahs!

  • Johan - 2012-06-27 13:25

    I am very exited to see what Willie le Roux can do in his favored position at the back. I think senseless kicks from Hougaard and Steyn will be punished either by his big boot (Not as big as Denillar but still bigger than most.) Or when Willie starts running he leaves the opposition wondering if he past you on the left or the right. Add to that his offloads and he could be dam dangerous. Robert Ebersohn would be out to proof something sins being overlooked by the powers that be. He steals a lot of ball in the tackle and likes to run. I would have played his brother but now that he is leaving its probably best to give Smith as much experience as possible. If Brussow hurts someone Meyers to blame Brussow is going to come out guns blazing and I for one am glad I don't have to deal with him in that mood. Glad to see Labuschagne getting his run. Been waiting a while now and he plays to the ball strong on his feet and is no slouch in the turn over department. Together with Brussow, Strauss and Marcel van der Merwe witch plays a lot like Coenie (And I wont say that lightly) the Bulls might have a bit of a problem putting phases together. I wont let the fact that the Bulls got such a big score in the first game in Bloem go to much to my head. It was the only game this season the Cheetahs played like a bunch of retards trying to do honours maths. The bulls played well and the Cheetahs sucked. This is a new game and a lot has happened sins then. Go Cheetahs!
