A lot of Cheetahs' supporters must be pulling their jocks from between their cheeks right now... dit was maar broekskeur!!!

They were losing with 4 minutes to go and then scored 2 tries to snatch an improbable victory and an even more improbably 4 try bonus point!!!!

The Pumas can really keep their heads high after that. Especially after taking a 80-16 beating in Bloem in Round 1.

The yellow card was so costly for the Pumas. Can't fault the ref or Pumas on that. Pumas were under serious pressure there and they did what they needed to do to keep the Tahs out.

That being said, the Cheetahs pulled it together when they really needed to. That for me is play-off material and character like that wins you finals.

But yeah. My nails are finished.

Biggest game next week is WP vs Pumas.

Lions, Sharks and Cheetahs are definitely in the semi-finals.

Bulls should win (5 pointer) but need the Pumas to win.

The Bulls dug their own graves by not beating the Griekwas last weekend. The WP has a +71 point difference and the Bulls are on +13.... Thus I highly doubt that the Bulls will put 70 points past the Leopards with the leopards not scoring at all and then have the WP win by no more than 14 points.

As long as the WP wins they should go through.

You're lucky as it should be a really good game. All the WP Boks want to play and it is a "must win" game for them!

lol :D

I must say I am not too sad that the bulls will not be in the semis as we simply did not play well enough in the first half of the CC :)
