Relief for Cheetahs captain
Cape Town - Cheetahs captain Francois Venter is recovering
well from a calf injury and should be ready to face the Waratahs in Sydney this
Venter was a late withdrawal from last Saturday’s team which
played the Reds in Brisbane, with Lood de Jager leading the Cheetahs.
Venter went for a scan to determine the severity of his injury.
“I should be able to train fully with the team on Tuesday. I
feel good,” he told Netwerk24 after the team arrived in Sydney.
This weekend’s clash will be the Cheetahs’ final tour game
in Australia, having already lost to the Rebels (36-14) and Reds (30-17).
Saturday’s clash at Allianz Stadium is scheduled for 11:45
