    Good team for the Cheetahs Nutronic.

    We cant be more pathetic than our last game. And Cheetahs cant be better. Our handling let us down badly and we came second on the ground.

    So my logic tells me it will be a toughie.

    Willem Serfontein, is that Boela, Jan's brother? He is as tough as nails.

    Their bench might not be that strong in the second half. Zeilanga is a good CC flyhalf though.

    Yes Bluebull it will be very tough, but I am excited to see what Nollis get out of the youngsters. Think we have a good mixture between youth and experience.

    What bothers me though is how hungry will Hougaard, J Dup and Stegmann be? Hopefully they will want to end their Bulls careers on a high note.

    Jip i think that is Boela.
