Cheetahs aim for another victory

2017-09-20 06:02

The Toyota Free State Cheetahs will be aiming to continue their great start to the season in a pulsating Currie Cup fixture against the Pumas in the Free State Stadium.

The two teams will face off in an ­all-important fixture on Friday (22/09) and with victory the Free State lads will cement their second position on the log and improve their prospects to make it into the top four.

The Cheetahs are trailing behind coastal opponents and current leaders, the Sharks, who boast 39 points at the helm.

The City of Roses’ boys have 25 points, equal to the third-placed Golden Lions.

The Pumas, who have 22 points in the bag and are in fifth position, will also be looking to derail the hosts and fight to improve their position on the log, with the chief objective of finishing in the top four.

Last year they progressed through the competition unbeaten.

Although they have lost three games this season, they are still on track.
