Another scalp to the Cheetahs

The Cheetahs will do South Africa a huge favour in dealing with the Chiefs. The Bones, on the comeback, have been rolled.

Going into Saturday at 4 from 4, the Bones showed accuracy. The assumption was a Sharks win and a painful Tahs victory. Glory to the Bulls for dealing with the mighty midget who captains the Tahs. Fantastic win for the Bully Boys. Imagine if they actually played clever footie every weekend? They’d have the seven Super rugby titles.

So four from six it was and no worries this side. Two South African wins I hadn’t factored.

This week there’ll also be two South African wins, but the Bones don’t fancy the Bulls without Bakkies and Victor and the Stormers and Lions will find the corner they are looking for is a dead end on tour. Love your team, but don’t be foolish about your support of a victory.

The Cheetahs will win because the Chiefs don’t travel well and even if they did, who travels well to Kimberley.

The Sharks will also be clinical in undoing the Crusaders, who will drop this one but still leave the Republic with two wins from three.
