16:48 - I have so say, the Chiefs fully deserved to get the draw. They were the only team on the park in second period and showed great guts and determination.
The Cheetahs now know you can't just sit back and defend a lead, even if it is 24 points!
In next week's action, the Cheetahs host the Crusaders, while the Chiefs play the Rebels at home in Hamilton.

Altitude seemed a disadvantage to Cheetahs! Do our teams need to smarten up their fitness? - Rob Houwing
16:47 - FULL-TIME: Cheetahs 43-43 Chiefs.
It's a another draw for the Chiefs after yet another remarkable fightback.
16:47 - CONVERSION by Cruden.
16:46 - TRY! Tim Nanai-Williams scores under the posts after side-stepping through the defence. Amazing stuff!
It was set up after a concerted period of attack by the Chiefs...
16:45 - Chiefs right on the Cheetahs line...
16:44 - Chiefs surge up to the Cheetahs 22m line...
16:43 - Inside the final minute and the Cheetahs have an attacking lineout close to the Chiefs 22m line...
But they concede a penalty and the Chiefs will launch one last attacking move...
16:41 - PENALTY converted by Goosen.
Cheetahs 43-36 Chiefs after 78 minutes. Are we seeing another draw?
16:40 - A dominant scrum from the Cheetahs sees them win a penalty. Goosen will line up from in front. The one area the Cheetahs were far superior in today!
16:39 - Chiefs trying to run it our of their own half and knock it on under pressure. Four minutes left and the Cheetahs have a scrum in the middle of the park.
16:37 - A Chiefs player was played off the ball by Lappies Labuschagné, while Willie le Roux was also tripped.
So it's an eye for an eye and the TMO rules play on...
Both incidents were penalisable...
16:36 - Just as the game becomes very loose, Willie le Roux spots a gap and kicks down-field into the Chiefs 22m area.
But referee Joubert wants to check with the TMO for foul play.

Cheetahs 37-36 Chiefs after 70 minutes.
16:30 - TRY! Fantastic ball-in-hand skill from the Chiefs sees Tikoirotuma go in at the corner for his second try. Also the BONUS POINT for them!
16:28 - A real howler from Cruden who pulls it badly to the right. Would have made it a five point game... 37-29 with 13 minutes left.
16:27 - Chiefs back in Cheetahs territory and win a penalty as the hosts go off-side. Cruden to line up from in front, about 30m out.
Tawera Kerr-Barlow now also on at No 9 for Augustine Pulu - the double try-scorer.

It shows real character when nothing is going right for u, but u keep fighting back, keep trucking, a never say die attitude #chiefsrugby - Alan Zondagh
16:23 - The Cheetahs take off their best player, Sarel Pretorius. Shaun Venter on.
Why take off the player who gives you so much X-factor?!
16:23 - Cheetahs 37-29 Chiefs after 63 minutes.
16:23 - CONVERSION by Cruden. Right from the corner!
16:22 - TRY! Chiefs wing Asaeli Tikoirotuma scores in the corner after another attractive attack...
16:20 - It's been all Chiefs in the second half. Unless the Cheetahs start playing again, we'll likely see another comeback by the Kiwi side...
16:20 - Cheetahs 37-22 Chiefs after 61 minutes.
16:20 - Cruden hits the uprights and misses the conversion...

16:17 - Cheetahs centre Howard Mnisi wins his second Super Rugby cap. Rayno Benjamin off...

16:13 - PENALTY nailed by Goosen.
Cheetahs 37-17 Chiefs after 55 minutes.
16:13 - The Chiefs transgress as a ruck just inside their own half and Goosen will line up...
16:12 - A first Super Rugby cap for Teboho "Oupa" Mohoje who replaces No 8 Jean Cook.
16:11 - SECOND HALF POSSESSION
16:10 - CONVERSION by Cruden from right next to the posts.
Cheetahs 34-17 Chiefs after 52 minutes.
16:10 - TRY! Augustine Pulu dives over for his second try. This time he makes sure he is not held up!
The try had to come after a concerted period of attack by the defending champions.
16:08 - Chiefs get out of trouble as they run from their own line to win a penalty on half-way.
Cruden sets up an attacking lineout...
16:07 - Caylib Oosthuizen has replaced Trevor Ntyakane at prop for the Cheetahs.

How many Sarels can you count on the field? So far I am on 3 - Judge Rugby
16:04 - PICTURE
Sarel Pretorius playing the game of his life today... (Gallo Images)
16:04 - Great Cheetahs defence is keeping the Chiefs at bay. It's that man Pretorius again. He really is Super Sarel today!
16:02 - Scrumhalf Pulu almost scores but he is brilliantly held up by Benjamin...
16:00 - A dominant maul by the Chiefs, but somehow Pretorius manages to rip the ball out and sprint away. He is tackled out on the 22m line. But jeepers, how did he get that ball out?!
15:59 - All Chiefs at the start here. They win a penalty on the Cheetahs 22m line, but they're too far behind to go for posts. Lineout coming up...
15:57 - The Chiefs have brought on two new front rankers in Jamie Mackintosh and Josh Hohneck. They can't do any worse than they already have in the scrums...

Five metre attacking scrum for the hosts!

15:24 - For those wondering, SA's Deon van Blommestein is the TMO and Craig Joubert the referee.
15:21 - Goosen kicks the PENALTY with ease!
Cheetahs 17-3 Chiefs after 19 minutes.
15:20 - A scrum penalty for the Cheetahs and Goosen will line up from a metre inside his own half...
15:20 - TWEETS
If that pass wasn't forward we might as well believe No1 had no knowledge or benefit at Nkandla. A shocker! - Dan Retief
That was an obvious forward pass - Simon Borchardt
15:18 - CONVERSION by Goosen.
Cheetahs 14-3 Chiefs after 15 minutes.
15:17 - TRY awarded to Benjamin. The TMO ruled no forward pass and also no earlier knock on in the move... Perhaps another wrong call by a TMO...
15:15 - Cheetahs centre Rayno Benjamin runs in to score after the hosts broke from inside their own half, but the TMO must check for a forward pass from Willie le Roux...
15:14 - PENALTY converted by Cruden

Great break from centre Tom Marshall as they win a penalty in front...
15:11 - METRES RUN SO FAR
15:09 - Cheetahs win a free kick at the first scrum and Pretorius takes a quick tap to launch another attack. Chiefs all over the show here...

Cheetahs 7-0 Chiefs after 7 minutes.
15:07 - TRY! Live-wire scrumhalf Sarel Pretorius darts through the Chiefs defence to score next to the uprights!
The attack was also set up by the scrumhalf who initially got the hosts close to the Chiefs line by evading a few tacklers.
15:05 - Goosen lines up a drop goal from halfway but misses it badly...
15:05 - Cheetahs win the game's first lineout after the Chiefs kicked out directly just inside their own half...
15:03 - Goosen misses the penalty attempt. On the angle, that must have been close to 60m. He had the legs but it was to the right of the uprights.
15:02 - After two minutes of non-stop play, the Cheetahs win a penalty just inside the Chiefs half after the visitors illegally enter a ruck. Goosen will line up from far out...
15:01 - A helter-skelter start to the game as both sides look to attack...
15:00 - Cheetahs pivot Johan Goosen gets play under way!
14:59 - Good to see that the Free State Stadium playing surface looks in tip-top shape after an overhaul in the last few weeks...
14:56 - DID YOU KNOW?
The Cheetahs have conceded the most tries so far in the competition - 23 in six matches, while the Chiefs have conceded only nine tries.
14:52 - The big question today is: Can the Cheetahs defence hold up against arguably the best attacking team in the competition? Unless the hosts show marked improvement in that department, their fans will leave disappointed.
After coming back from the dead to draw with the Bulls last week, the Chiefs were still confident enough to make 10 changes to their squad. The Cheetahs will be better at home, but I'm going Chiefs by a whisker...
