Cheetahs score impressive win

Naka Drotske’s Cheetahs team scored a convincing 31-6 victory over the Pumas in their final Super Rugby warm-up game, in Bloemfontein on Saturday. The hosts scored four tries against just two penalties from the boot of Pumas flyhalf JC Roos.

The newly-promoted Pumas may have been without the services of a few key men – on duty with the Lions Super Rugby squad – but if anything, the result should have given them a taste for just how tricky life might be in the Currie Cup Premier Division later this year. Then again, with the Cheetahs boasting a full complement of Springbok players on Saturday in their first-choice Super Rugby line-up, this is likely to be the strongest Cheetahs team the Pumas are going to face in 2014.

Boom Prinsloo, surprisingly relegated to the bench in favour of Jean Cook, underlined his class with two tries once he came on, although it was Cook himself who first crossed the chalk for the Cheetahs. A penalty try secured the “bonus point” for the hosts, with the main positive from the encounter being an encouraging performance from boy-wonder Johan Goosen, who dictated matters well against the Currie Cup minnows and, crucially, managed to walk off the field without the aid of medical personnel.

Cheetahs 31: Tries: Jean Cook, Boom Prinsloo (2), Penalty Try. Conversions: Johan Goosen (3), Elgar Watts.
Pumas 6: Penalties: JC Roos (2).
