Cheetahs aim for win at home

2019-04-24 06:00

The Toyota Cheetahs are eyeing an home win over the Southern Kings in their final Pro14 rugby tournament fixture in Bloemfontein on Saturday (27/04).

With a victory they can end with a bang and give the home fans something to shout about.

The Kings are eyeing their third win while the Cheetahs hunt their eighth win in this tough competition.

The Free State side is second from the bottom in Conference A, same as the visitors in Conference B. Both sides have failed to qualify for the Pro14 finals series. They will play for pride and honour in Saturday’s fixture in the City of Rose.

Fans can only hope that the Cheetahs are as ruthless against the visitors from Port Elizabeth as they were in their comprehensive 38 – 13 win against the Dragons two weeks ago.

The impressive performance should however have been displayed earlier in the competition in their qualification for the play-offs of the lucrative competition.

The Cheetahs were well disciplined against the Dragons and the technical team can only hope the players can repeat the stunning performance to end the term on high note.

They are bound to focus and ensure there is accuracy with their passing.

  • Cohesion against the Kings will certainly ensure the Cheetahs finishing off a poor season in style and make three wins of their remaining games. Kick-off is at 17:30.
