Thanks for joining us for this one.

The Sharks take on the Crusaders in Durban next ... hopefully that one will deliver a South African win. 

Cheers!

The Cheetahs will look back and identify a few key moments where they were perhaps a bit sloppy on defence ... 

26 Mar 2016

That was an entertaining last few minutes as the Cheetahs really turned it on. But it was all a bit too late from the hosts ...

26 Mar 2016

FULL-TIME: Marais makes no mistake and that's the game. At least the Cheetahs have something to show for their efforts. 

It finished Cheetahs 18-25 Brumbies ...

26 Mar 2016

80' Hooter has gone and the Cheetahs have a penalty 5m out ... They'll take the 3 to secure the bonus point ...

26 Mar 2016

80' Cheetahs maul goes close ... it's on here ...

26 Mar 2016

79' Just a minute to go here and the Cheetahs will be looking for one more score to secure a bonus point ...

26 Mar 2016

78' Cheetahs go on another dangerous looking attack but Zelinga can't find a runner and loses it ...

26 Mar 2016

77' Conversion good. Cheetahs 15-25 Brumbies. 

26 Mar 2016

That was ridiculous! Raymond Rhule collected a kick and then, ever so casually, cross-kicked it almost backwards to Blommetjies

The Cheetahs fullback then released Petersen, who had too much pace for the Brumbies defence. 

Butch James says 'That's the try of the game' ... and he's spot-on.

26 Mar 2016

75! TRY CHEETAHS! 

26 Mar 2016

74' The Cheetahs, as always, have been willing to move the ball quickly. But they just haven't looked after it well enough in this second half ...

26 Mar 2016

73' But again the Cheetahs lose the ball and the Brumbies clear through Toomua ...

26 Mar 2016

72' Lobberts bundled into touch. Brumbies lineout ... Cheetahs make the steal and can go again! 

26 Mar 2016

72' Cheetahs having another go just outside the Brumbies 22 ...

26 Mar 2016

71' Cheetahs look to run it from deep inside their own 22m. Petersen stabs ahead and is tackled without the ball. Penalty Cheetahs ...

26 Mar 2016

70' Cubelli clears towards half-way ...

26 Mar 2016

69' So frustrating for the Cheetahs. A little knock on after the lineout was secured gifts possession back to the Brumbies ...

26 Mar 2016

69' Cheetahs win another scrum penalty and set of a lineout about 15m out ...

26 Mar 2016

Cheetahs just not clinical enough when it matters most. That was a fantastic opportunity to get back into this game. Hard to see any result other than a Brumbies win now ...

26 Mar 2016

66' Cheetahs have it 10m out ... but a wayward pass allows the Brumbies to clear. 

26 Mar 2016

66' Lineout was more like 30m out. Cheetahs win the penalty at the rolling maul and they can set up another lineout even closer now ...

26 Mar 2016

65' Brumbies clear their lines. Cheetahs will have the lineout about 40m out ...

26 Mar 2016

64' Really good from the Cheetahs. They make the break and Torsten Van Jaarsveld is bundled into touch about 7m short ...

26 Mar 2016

64' Cheetahs lineout 40m out ...

26 Mar 2016

64' Huge scrum from the Cheetahs and they shove the Brumbies pack off the ball to win the penalty! They're still fighting! 

26 Mar 2016

63' A knock-on gives the Brumbies a scrum from left-field, 35m out ...

26 Mar 2016

63' Cheetahs trying to run the ball and be expansive, but it's just not working for them. Seems like every run is starting from a stand-still position ... battling for momentum. 

26 Mar 2016

61' Cheetahs need something here ... but Fardy wins the lineout ... Toomua clears towards half-way ...

26 Mar 2016

60' Brumbies are offside and Cheetahs win a penalty. Blommetjies sets up the lineout about 5m out ...

26 Mar 2016

It's going to take one heck of an effort for the Cheetahs to rescue this one now ...

26 Mar 2016

59' Cheetahs lineout 40m out ...

26 Mar 2016

58' Toomua knocks over the conversion ... Cheetahs 8-25 Brumbies ...

26 Mar 2016

57' TRY BRUMBIES! Ben Alexander. Again, just too many phases for the Cheetahs defence ...

26 Mar 2016

57' Brumbies going hard just 5m out now ...

26 Mar 2016

56' Cheetahs get some momentum and carry the ball up to half-way, but Pocock enforces another turnover and the Brumbies have the penalty ...

26 Mar 2016

56' Hilton Lobberts on for Uzair Cassiem ...

26 Mar 2016

55' Brumbies ignore the 3 points and set up the lineout 7m out ...

26 Mar 2016

54' Another tightly contested scrum and the Brumbies are awarded the penalty ...

26 Mar 2016

53' Brumbies will not have a scrum just outside the Cheetahs 22m area after Cubelli takes a penalty quickly and kicks ahead, forcing a knock-on from Marais ...

26 Mar 2016

51' WOW! That was crazy. Brumbies secured their own scrum ball and then lost it. Boom Prinsloo went to the boot and the ball stayed in play where Petersen got a boot on it and chased. He dived in an attempt to score the try, but it was just out of reach. 

22m dropout to the Brumbies, but that Cheetahs counter was almost the length of the field ...

26 Mar 2016

50' Brumbies scrum 25m out ... dangerous for the Cheetahs ...

26 Mar 2016

48' Brumbies go to the boot and the Cheetahs can't clear. Blommetjies drops it . Brumbies have a lineout now inside the Cheetahs 22m area ...

26 Mar 2016

47' Brumbies win the short arm for an early push from the Cheetahs ...

26 Mar 2016

47' Brumbies scrum just outside their own 22m area ...

26 Mar 2016

45' PENALTY is good from Lealiifano and the Brumbies have the first points of the 2nd half. Cheetahs 8-18 Brumbies ...

26 Mar 2016

45' Lealiifano lining up a shot at goal ... 37m out and straight
