Power in the props

It's not only the Sharks who can boast an all-Springbok front row, the Cheetahs also have that bragging right.

Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has made five changes to the side who thrashed Griquas 52-21 last weekend for this weekend’s decisive Currie Cup clash against the Blue Bulls in Bloemfontein.

His frontrow Boks, prop Coenie Oosthuizen and hooker Adriaan Strauss are back. Strauss also takes over the leadership from loose forward Boom Prinsloo.

“The most important thing now is to make sure we do indeed reach the knockout stages. If we can do that anything is possible,” said Drotske.

“Once you are in the semifinals, none of your previous results matter.”
