Foreign legion fighting back

All Black centre Keith Lowen and Samoan hooker Trevor Leota will play for the Free State Cheetahs against the Falcons in the Vodacom Cup on Friday.

Lowen is fighting his way back from injury, while Leota was dropped by Cheetahs’ Super 14 coach Rassie Erasmus after struggling with his line-out throwing against the Bulls.

With Tiaan Liebenburg showing great form against the Sharks and Ollie le Roux able to cover prop and hooker from the bench, Leota has been sent back to the Vodacom side to find some form.

Ironically, Leota’s brother Jess is also in the Vodacom Cup squad for the Cheetahs.
