    Both the Cheetahs and the Western Force will be out to end losing streaks this morning when they face off in Bloemfontein this morning. We’ll have live scores from kick-off at 3.10am AEST.

    For long periods of last weekend’s rain-soaked encounter at nib Stadium the Force were competitive against the Stormers, but never really threatened and only the most ardent Force fan would have ever thought they were a chance at toppling the South African powerhouse.

    But they get the chance against one of the South African Conference’s lesser lights this weekend as they begin a two-game South African road trip, with the Cheetahs up first.

    Fortunately for the Force they’ve been able to travel west without any injury concerns from last weekend.

    The farce surrounding the ‘signing’ and subsequent non-signing of star scrumhalf Will Genia was yet another blow for a team who has struggled this season and it will be intriguing to see how they perform here.

    The Cheetahs come into this one off losses to the Chiefs and Highlanders at home, but in both contests they were able to put up more than 30 points against two of the competition’s more defensive units.

    Expect another avalanche of points this morning, with the home side likely to edge out their Australian counterparts. We’ll have live scores from 3.10am AEST. If you’re watching, give us your thoughts in the space below.

        Obviously you didn’t watch the games otherwise you wouldn’t say that.

      With the obvious bias from the REfs in South AFrica with the Force and Cheetahs game and the game in New Zealand between Crusaders and Reds, the Captains of the Australian teams need to talk to the REF and threaten to take their team off the field. It is a waste of time to keep playing and risk someone getting hurt and the outcome will be the same.

      CAPTAINS ORDER YOUR TEAM OFF THE FIELD WHEN THE REF IS SO SO SO SO SO SO SO BIAS AND “”””””””SANZAR””””””””””” won’t do anythng about it. They are ruining the competition and the game!

      The REF was obviously biased. Nearly every decision was wrong, nearly every call “Blue – Hands out” was wrong and they stop a try when the little scuffle on the side had nothing to do with the flow of the ball. Check out the Force and Cheetahs game. The Force should have won but the REF spoilt the game time and time again. The worse case and very very very obvious biased I have ever seen.

      COME ON THIS ISNT RUGBY!!!!!!! I had to turn the last 10 minutes off as I didn’t want to see that rubbish as that isn’t rugby.

      IT was alwasy obvious that games in South Africa were always a bit ‘ ify’ when the Refs would assist the team that best suit their team’s placing but NOW it is just bloody ridiculous. Look at today’s example between Force and Cheetahs. Even the commentators were shocked.


      It is no use punishing the Ref after the game as they have already influenced the competition and ruined the placings so take them off during the game or have a second non bias Ref. Get the from the Northern Hemisphere. It will help us in the future as they will learn how we play AND they will be keeping their skills up on the off season.

      Hello, is anyone listening out there. THE REF WON THE GAME. Gee, a South African Ref, South African Line Ref and does anyone wonder what they saw???

      SANZAR – you have stuffed the competition. The Refs are changing the results of the competition and it isn’t worth watching anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Look at the game in New Zealand today Crusaders and the Reds. Hello, New Zealand Team – New Zealand Refs and Gee the decisions were once again biased. Probably not as bad as the guy in South Africa as that was the worse case of discrimination I have ever seen.

      Don’t keep ruining the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Luckily he’s only 19. Hougaard/Goosen would make the most exciting 9/10 pairing. Infact, imagine what Pretorious and Goosen would have done this season if the Waratahs didn’t buy Sarel just to make him sit on the bench for their lame academy player.
