Cheetahs sweat over halfbacks
Cape Town - The Cheetahs are sweating over the availability of halfbacks Sarel Pretorius and Joe Pietersen ahead of their Super Rugby clash against the Highlanders in Bloemfontein on Saturday (19:10 kick-off).
According to Netwerk24, both have shoulder injuries and could miss the game against the Kiwis.
Pretorius got injured in practice on Monday, while Pietersen has not recovered as well as initially hoped after last week's bye.
Pietersen saw a specialist on Monday and it remains unsure if he'll be ready for Saturday's game.
Apart from Pretorius, Tian Meyer and Shaun Venter are the other scrumhalves in the squad, while Francois Brummer and Willie du Plessis can replace Pietersen at flyhalf.
The Cheetahs will name their team later on Tuesday.
