21:01 - Thanks for tuning in!

This was the first time in 2014 that three SA teams have won on the same day!

In next week's action, the Cheetahs travel to Cape Town to face the Stormers, while the Brumbies face the Bulls in Pretoria!

Also remember to follow our live updates on tomorrow morning's match between the Waratahs and Lions in Sydney (08:05 SA time).

FULL-TIME: Cheetahs 27-21 Brumbies

A great second half performance by the Cheetahs gives South Africa 3 from 3 so far against Australasian opposition this weekend!

80' - Venter clears to Watts who kicks out to end the game... Cheetahs win!

79' - Tackle ball. Another Cheetahs scrum with 20 seconds left...

79' - One minute left and the Cheetahs have a scrum just inside their own half. Can they hold on?


Kanonpoot Goosen slots a woer-woer drop from 50 metres! - Breyton Paulse

78' - Brumbies throwing caution to the wind now... but lose possession just inside the Cheetahs half... 


Johan Goosen lands a 55m drop goal! Amazing kick!

Cheetahs 27-21 Brumbies

77' - A skew lineout throw inside Cheetahs territory by Brumbies hooker Moore brings relief for the home side...

76' - Four minutes left and the Brumbies are still kicking it away. Do they realise they are behind with the sands of time running out...?

74' - If the Cheetahs lose this, Brüssow's brain-fart should be blamed!

74' - White CONVERTS from about 15m in from touch.

Cheetahs 24-21 Brumbies.

73' - TRY! Hooker Stephen Moore barges over after a dominant driving maul by the Brumbies.

72' - The Brumbies opt for an attacking lineout...


Heinrich Brüssow is sent to the sin-bin after cynically kicking the ball away after conceding a penalty close to his own tryline.

This is the second time he has done that in the game, and is now rightfully sent off...

70' - The Brumbies seem to have run out of ideas here. Kicking away too much ball now...

67' - The Cheetahs butcher a three-man overlap out wide when Watts drops the ball... sigh... That could have been the match-clincher!

65' - Nothing going right for the Brumbies now. Jesse Mogg kicking a ball out on the full inside his own half also doesn't help his team's cause...

64' - Replays show a perfectly legal tackle by Benjamin - in fact, a superb tackle!

64' - TMO CALL

The TMO is called into action for potential foul play against Cheetahs centre Rayno Benjamin, who floored a Brumbies player in midfield.

61' - A PENALTY by White brings the Brumbies back to within 10 points.

Cheetahs 24-14 Brumbies

61' - The Brumbies respond by bringing on two new props - the South African-born twin brothers, Ruan and JP Smith.

60' - Goosen slots the PENALTY.

Cheetahs 24-11 Brumbies

58' - A Cheetahs scrum penalty right in front of the posts leaves the Brumbies puzzled. How have the Cheetahs overturned their scrum fortunes so suddenly? Perhaps the appearance of Nyakane?

58' - A Cheetahs knock-on close to the Brumbies line brings relief to the Aussie side.

But they seem up against it now. Perhaps altitude catching up with them...?

56' - Now the Cheetahs scrum also appears to be better as they win a penalty. Goosen almost misses his touch finder, but it lands between two Brumbies players and rolls out into the 22m area...


Brilliant Elgar Watts. Brilliant ... Cheetahs have doused themselves in petrol and lit a match! - Front Row Grunt

53' - Trevor Nyakane also now on at prop for the Cheetahs.

52' - Goosen CONVERTS from the touchline.

Cheetahs 21-11 Brumbies


Johan Goosen follows up on a brilliant Elgar Watts cross-kick and scores in the corner.

The TMO was consulted to see if Goosen was in front. He wasn't, so the try stands.

50' - Meanwhile, just before that try, Elgar Watts replaced fullback Hennie Daniller.

Watts is at flyhalf with Johan Goosen now at fullback.

48' - Goosen misses the conversion from the touchline.

Cheetahs 14-11 Brumbies

46' - TRY to the Cheetahs! Willie le Roux scores in the corner after a brilliant sniping break from scrumhalf Shaun Venter.

Venter's last pass to Le Roux was brilliant, but commentator Joel Stransky thinks it may have been forward...

The try stands nevertheless as no TMO was consulted!

45' - The first second half scrum is better by the Cheetahs but scrumhalf Venter is penalised for playing his opposite number White too early...

43' - A counter-attack from the Cheetahs from inside their own 22m area sees them surge up-field but a Hennie Daniller knock on halts their charge...

40' - The first second half penalty goes to the Brumbies but White fails to find touch deep inside Cheetahs territory....

40' - Welcome back for the second half. Matt Toomua starts proceedings...

20:10 - TWEET

Brumbies' scrum could tilt this game in second half ... - Rob Houwing

20:09 - The Cheetahs need to get new props on. Trevor Nyakane may be the man...

HALF-TIME: Cheetahs 9-11 Brumbies

40'- A great strike from White sees the Brumbies take the lead for the first time in the match.

40' - On the stroke of half-time, the Brumbies win ANOTHER penalty at scrum time.

White will line up a tough kick, from about 40m out.

38' - Adriaan Strauss can count himself lucky though. He was the one who had initially given away a cynical penalty and probably deserved to see yellow... 

37' -  The penalty is turned around! And White is not a happy camper!

He was very frustrated at Brüssow who kicked the ball away after the whistle was blown...

37' - Replays show White shoving his elbow into the face of Brüssow, before the latter responds by attempting to punch him, but misses...

36' - Brumbies hot on the attack and win a penalty right on the Cheetahs line. As soon as the referee's whistle blows, exchanges get a bit heated between Brüssow and White...

The TMO is called into action...

34' - The Brumbies appear to have all the momentum at scrum time now. Another penalty in that department gives them the opportunity to set up a lineout deep in Cheetahs territory...

32' - White misses the conversion to the left. Only poor goal-kicking by the Brumbies is keeping the Cheetahs in front.

Cheetahs 9-8 Brumbies

31' - TRY! Brumbies left wing Robbie Coleman scores in the corner.

It was set up by scrumhalf Nic White, who made a sniping break on the blindside before putting in a sneaky little grubber which was followed up by Coleman.

30' - White hits it badly to the right. Cheetahs off the hook, again!

29' - A Brumbies penalty at scrum time gives White another shot at goal from about 40m out...

28' - A dropped ball in midfield by Johann Sadie gives the Brumbies another chance to attack inside Cheetahs territory...

27' - However, after several resets, the Cheetahs win a free-kick and are off the hook!

27' - A five-metre attacking scrum for the Brumbies gives them the perfect platform to attack...

25' - Willie le Roux fails to take a Nic White up-and-under which allows the Brumbies to attack inside the Cheetahs 22... Poor from the Springbok back there!

23' - Cheetahs back in the red zone after a barn-storming run from Brüssow. However, the visitors win a penalty on the ground to bring relief...

20' - PENALTY slotted by White. A superb strike from the scrumhalf!

Cheetahs 9-3 Brumbies.

19' - Another penalty! Heinrich Brüssow is the man caught off his feet at a ruck. 

Nic White takes over the kicking duties and lines up from about 49m out...

18' - Lealiifano misses to the left - again!

17' - The Cheetahs are themselves now caught for committing obstruction. Lealiifano will line up from about 45m out...

16' - Goosen converts the PENALTY from in front.

Cheetahs 9-0 Brumbies


Brumbies lock Scott Fardy is off for 10 minutes after another penalty conceded in the red zone.

The visitors were on a warning so the correct call was made there.

13' - Another penalty as the Brumbies collapse the driving maul. Referee Marius van der Westhuizen officially warns the Brumbies...

12' - Another kickable penalty to the Cheetahs as Henry Speight is caught off-side in the red zone.

Cheetahs skipper Adriaan Strauss opts for a lineout instead if going for the three points.

11' - Missed long range drop-goal attempt from Goosen.

He struck it well, but it just missed to the right...

10' - The Brumbies fail to handle a high ball and it bounces into the hands of Cheetahs right wing Cornal Hendricks, who sprints down the touchline. His chip-kick is covered by the Brumbies but they are bundled out, which gives the Cheetahs another attacking lineout...

9' - Lealiifano's attempt misses to the left...

7' - The Brumbies now win a kickable penalty when Johan Goosen is caught off-side. He was in front of scrumhalf Shaun Venter who kicked an up-and-under...

Christian Lealiifano to line up from the corner...

7' - PENALTY converted by Goosen.

Cheetahs 6-0 Brumbies

6' - Goosen boots the penalty down-field and from the ensuing lineout the Brumbies transgress by pulling a Cheetahs man down.

Goosen to line up from about 40m out.

6' - NO TRY! TMO Johan Greeff rules there was obstruction and the Cheetahs are off the hook!


Brumbies wing Henry Speight rips through the Cheetahs defence and scores. However, the referee - Marius van der Westhuizen - wants to check for potential obstruction.

3' - No surprise as the first scrum collapses! When does this not happen?

3' - A silly knock-on from Cheetahs No 9 Shaun Venter gives the Brumbies an attacking scrum on the Cheetahs 22m line...

2' - PENALTY converted by Goosen.

Cheetahs 3-0 Brumbies

1' - The Cheetahs win an early kickable penalty after the Brumbies are penalised at ruck time. Easy kick coming up for Goosen...

0' - Brumbies fullback Jesse Mogg lands an early touch finder. His tactical kicking will again prove vital for the Brumbies. He was sublime last week against the Sharks.

19:10 - Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen gets the game started!

19:09 - Bitterly cold in Bloem. But no rain wind or rain so hopefully we can see some running rugby! 

19:08 - Yes, Cheetahs captain Adriaan Strauss appears from the tunnel with his side sporting their predominantly white strip.

19:08 - The Brumbies are playing in an orange looking kit. Lets hope then that the Cheetahs are in white!

  • 80'

    That's it! The Cheetahs win! The Brumbies collect a losing bonus point but they would have expected more. Thanks for joining us, cheers!

  • 80'


  • 79'

    The Cheetahs win a scrum by holding up a Brumbies Maul. Now the hosts keep it tight as they try run down the clock.

    DROP-GOAL, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 27-21. Unbelievable! Goosen hits the target with a drop-goal from inside his own half!

  • 77'

    Whoa! Le Roux thumps a massive kick to find touch deep in the Brumbies half. Moore's throw isn't straight so the Cheetahs have a late chance to attack.

  • 75'

    CONVERSION, WHITE. 24-19. Game on! This one is going down to the wire.

  • 74'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, MOORE. The Brumbies set up a line-out from the penalty and Moore scores from a textbook maul.

  • 72'

    YELLOW CARD, CHEETAHS, BRUSSOW. The Brumbies win a penalty and Brussow kicks it away, earning ten minutes in the bin.

  • 69'

    A bit of kick tennis ends in a line-out to the Brumbies on the halfway line.

  • 67'

    The Cheetahs find touch. The Brumbies look to spread it wide after a line-out. Brussow intercepts and the Cheetahs have numbers out wide but Watts drops it in contact.

  • 65'

    Rayno Benjamin races up out of the defensive line and slams into Toomua, who spills the ball. Scrum to the Cheetahs just inside their own half.

  • 64'

    The Brumbies are still very much in this game. They look dangerous with ball in hand as Carter finds some space before offloading to Moore. Brussow intercepts, allowing Watts to clear.

  • 62'

    PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE. 24-14. The Brumbies strike right back as Oosthuizen is penalised for trying to poach the ball on the deck. White hits the target from long range.

  • 59'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN. 24-11. Another scrum penalty against the Brumbies. Goosen slots it from straight in front.

  • 57'

    The Cheetahs win a scrum penalty. Goosen finds touch on the Brumbies 22. The Aussie conference leaders are in trouble!

  • 55'

    Heinrich Brussow is having another blinder! How can the Springbok coaching staff ignore him in this form? He steals another one on the deck.

  • 53'

    CONVERSION, GOOSEN. 21-11. Great conversion from the touchline!

  • 51'

    TRY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 19-11. Unreal! Elgar Watt has just come on but sends a perfect kick out wide, which Goosen plucks out of the air, beating Robbie Coleman, to score to the corner!

  • 49'

    Goosen's conversion is....wide.

  • 48'

    TRY, CHEETAHS, LE ROUX! 14-11. Brussow breaks from the back of a scrum and feeds Venter, who slices through. His long pass wide finds le Roux, who races home to score in the corner!

  • 45'

    Christian Lealiifano tries a chip through after the line-out but it goes straight to Cornal Hendricks, who counters. A few silly mistakes costing the Brumbies.

  • 43'

    White fails to find touch from a penalty to the Brumbies and Le Roux counters. The Cheetahs are penalised again in the Brumbies half but this time White finds touch just outside the Cheetahs 22.

  • 41'

    Here we go for the second half! A bit of kick tennis early on ends with the Cheetahs in possession near half way.

  • 40'

    Cheetahs looking to have the final say before half-time. Knock ons by both sides but the first one was from Moore. Last play.

  • 40'

    Scrum turns the way of the Brumbies and they win a penalty. Not enough time to go for touch so White will try to give his side the lead for the first time with a shot at goal.

  • 40'

    PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 9-11: Super strike from the number nine and the Brumbies go into the lead at the break. Despite being under the cosh for most of the half their class is shining through.

  • 40'


  • 39'

    Tough call for the TMO but in the end the Brumbies are penalised after White shoved Brussow in the face. Harsh call there as the Cheetahs clear.

  • 38'

    Huge Brumbies pressure on the Cheetahs as Brussow infringes by putting his hands in the ruck. It all flares up between White and Brussow as the officials try to calm things down! TMO checking...

  • 37'

    Kuridrani bundled into touch deep in Cheetahs territory. Lineout is rocky but Mohoje tidies up, before Venter produces a howling pass straight into touch. Brumbies lineout.

  • 35'

    Hendricks tries to keep a deep Brumbies kick to touch infield, but to no avail. Worrying times for the Cheetahs as the Brumbies have a lineout in the 22.

  • 33'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, COLEMAN! 9-8: Clever, clever play from the Brumbies. White drifts and sends a grubber behind the defence with Coleman the first man there for the try. Fine finish. White hooks the conversion wide.

  • 31'

    Scrum penalty to the Brumbies, Coenie Oosthuizen the culprit. White's long-range attempt is wide to the right.

  • 30'

    Lineout for the Brumbies is stolen, but Sadie knocks on stepping inside. Scrappy first half this.

  • 28'

    Free kick given to the Cheetahs as the Brumbies try to engage early. Good relief for the home side.

  • 26'

    Better from the Brumbies after White's box kick causes havoc. Wide attack as Kuridrani hits the hole, before the grubber from through is tapped back over the line by the Cheetahs. Scrum five Brumbies.

  • 24'

    Brumbies working with slow ball and Mogg kicks the ball out on the full. Australian side just aren't getting going yet and that will give the Cheetahs hope. Super carry from Brussow but it ends with a turnover penalty for the Brumbies.

  • 23'

    Toomua gets a great kick away to ease the pressure on the Brumbies. Cheetahs lineout - chip over the top from Le Roux but Mogg is smart and gets away from Goosen before clearing to touch.

  • 22'

    PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 9-3: The scrum-half makes no mistake with a super long-range strike! Brumbies on the board.

  • 21'

    Instant reprieve for the Brumbies with a penalty inside the Cheetahs' half. White taking over from Lealiifano.

  • 20'

    Again Lealiifano hooks the ball and misses the target. Brumbies struggling to get into this one but a long way to go.

  • 19'

    Cheetahs pinged for crossing in midfield, handing Lealiifano a chance to score the Brumbies'' first points of the match. He lines it up in a central position around 40 metres out.

  • 17'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 9-0: Easiest of strikes from Goosen as he smacks it through for a nine-point lead.

  • 15'

    YELLOW CARD, BRUMBIES, FARDY! Cheetahs can't get their first maul up and running but they win a penalty. Back into the corner, attacking the line. The ball comes loose but the Cheetahs recover, still in the 22. Brumbies playing with fire and that's a yellow card! Fardy goes to the bin.

  • 14'

    Cheetahs doing all the running early on, as Sadie and Daniller both make good ground. Another penalty to the Cheetahs now as tempers fray. Goosen into the corner.

  • 13'

    Stolen lineout and White clears to touch - wasted chance there by the home side. Next lineout is won by the Cheetahs and eventually Goosen lines up a long drop goal. It's a good strike, but wide to the left of the posts.

  • 11'

    Burst from Hendricks down the touchline, but Mogg is there to deflect the chip backwards so the Brumbies can recover. White is bundled into touch and the Cheetahs have a promising lineout here.

  • 10'

    Attempt at goal just curls round to the left from Lealiifano. Dropout for the Cheetahs.

  • 9'

    Cheetahs offside in front of their own box kick, so it's a penalty to the Brumbies deep in enemy territory. Lealiifano lining up a shot.

  • 8'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 6-0: Excellent strike and the Cheetahs have a healthy lead now. Brumbies yet to get into the game.

  • 7'

    Good pressure from the Brumbies in defence but it's illegally done, tackling Benjamin in the air. Goosen to go for goal.

  • 6'

    Speight looks to be over for a try! But was there obstruction? TMO is checking the evidence and the score is ruled out. It's a Cheetahs penalty and Goosen clears.

  • 4'

    Cheetahs secure the restart but then knock on through Venter trying to box kick under pressure. Scrum to the Brumbies on the 22.

  • 3'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 3-0: An early lead for the underdogs as Goosen strikes.

  • 2'

    Attacking lineout for the Cheetahs and Strauss rumbles well around the corner. Building the phases edep in the 22. Penalty to the Cheetahs for not releasing and Goosen will go for the posts.

  • 0'

    Henry Speight returns to the wing for his first appearance since fracturing his jaw in Round 5. South African-born JP Smith returns to the bench in place of Ruaidhri Murphy in an otherwise unchanged team from the one which beat the Sharks in Canberra last Saturday.

  • 0'

    Hello and welcome to Bloemfontein as the struggling Cheetahs host last year's finalists the Brumbies.

  • 0'

    A dry night up in Bloemfontein as Adriaan Strauss leads out his side. It's bottom versus second and kickoff is minutes away.

  • 0'

    Goosen starts proceedings for the home side. Returned instantly by Mogg.

  • 0'

    Cheetahs boss Naka Drotske has made three changes to his starting line-up. Amongst the backs, Cornal Hendricks comes into the run-on side on to the wing for Raymond Rhule who drops down to the replacements bench while Shaun Venter replaces the injured Sarel Pretorius at scrum-half. Pretorius sustained an ankle injury during last weekend's 23=16 defeat to the Western Force in Bloemfontein. Meanwhile, in the forwards, Boela Serfontein takes over in the second row from Waltie Vermeulen who drops down to the bench.
