Chiefs captain Sam Cane returns for this match and the talismanic openside flanker will no doubt bring plenty of aggression to the loose trio. He will not only bolster the side physically but tactically as well with his cool, calm and collected approach under pressure. Plus, he will be making the big decisions on the day and there is no better candidate for that.
The Chiefs will need to be wary of the pace of Sergeal Petersen, who starts on the wing for the Cheetahs. Petersen, a 100m World Youth Athletics Champion, has scored 95 points since signing for the Cheetahs in 2015. The speed merchant injured himself in the opening match of this season against the Lions and now making his comeback from a six-week layoff. The 2012 Craven Week Player of the Tournament has also turned out for the SA Sevens side and poses a serious threat, especially in one-on-one situations, where he can expose some of the quickest for pace.
The Chiefs’ five-game winning streak was ended in the 36-24 defeat to the Stormers on Saturday. They still played amazing rugby, scoring scintillating tries but any team in the world would have found it hard to beat the Stormers with the way they were playing on Saturday. Before this, the Chiefs notched up impressive victories, winning 24-15 against the Highlanders, 41-26 against the Blues, 26-18 against the Hurricanes, 27-14 against the Rebels and 28-12 against the Bulls.
The Cheetahs, on the other hand, have been poor this season, winning two matches while losing four. They have lost 25-28 to the Lions, 14-41 to the Jaguares, 30-38 to the Sharks and 10-53 to the Stormers. They beat the Bulls 34-28 in Round two and the Sunwolves 38-31 in Round three. They are on a three-match losing streak but a bye last week would have served to freshen up the legs and minds.
