Murrayfield is an icon in world rugby with lots of history and tradition." Said Coach Franco Smith.<br><br> "Weandrsquo;ve made changes to team due to Gerhard Olivierandrsquo;s return back home and Ryno Eksteenandrsquo;s injury. We are glad to have Abongile Nonkontwana who joined the team on tour. He joined the Toyota Cheetahs earlier this year without a contract but proofed himself worthy by working himself up through the SuperSport Rugby Challenge and Currie Cup. It proofs again that Free State Rugby is a breeding ground of opportunity and that we will always keep on producing talent."<br><br> "Changes to the starting line-up with Justin Basson and Jacques du Toit bring new excitement and energy to the team, the same with Stephan Malan." <br><br> Changes to the team from last week:<br><br> andbull; Hookers, Joseph Dweba and Jacques du Toit switch places with Du Toit in the starting line-up<br> andbull; Walt Steenkamp and Justin Basson switch places with Steenkamp providing cover on the bench.<br> andbull; Neill Jordaan moves to flank, replacing Gerhard Olivier who returned home for the birth of his first born.

I brought him from Vasity Cup and through the rank. It is wonderful to see him achieving this special milestone."<br><br> "Edinburgh is a well-coached team with a lot of international and South African players in their squad. They are very competitive and it will especially be a challenge to play them at home." <br><br> The two sides have only met once before with the Toyota Cheetahs defeating Edinburgh 33-13 in Bloemfontein last season. <br><br> The following players are not eligible for team selection due to injury:<br><br> Quintin Vorster (ankle), Ntokosa Vidima (wrist), Dries Swanepoel (shoulder), Erich de Jager (bicep), Oupa Mohoje (knee), Luan de Bruin (ankle), Aiden Davis (laceration), Jasper Wiese (shoulder), Lloyd Greeff (ankle), Sibabalo Qoma (ankle), Ernst Stapelberg (concussion), Malcolm Jaer (lower back sprain), Ryno Eksteen (knee).<br> The team will be returning home on Saturday and arrive on Bloemfontein on Sunday afternoon.

The fact that the Toyota Cheetahs are the only team in the competition that have yet to register a victory will add to their motivation. <br><br> The presence of a handful of South Africans in the Edinburgh squad, including Pierre Schoeman (currently suspended), Duhan van der Merwe and Jaco van der Walt, is expected to spice up the clash.<br><br> Saturdayandrsquo;s match between the Isuzu Southern Kings and Benetton in Treviso is expected to be equally exciting, as the visitors are determined to bounce back from a disappointing 54-14 defeat and to register their first ever away victory in the competition, while the hosts will be desperate to bounce back from three successive defeats.<br><br> The teams have met twice in the competition with Benetton andndash; who has former DHL Western Province scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenage in their ranks andndash; winning both matches, but the clash in Port Elizabeth in March in which the Isuzu Southern Kings went down by one point will boost their confidence going into the clash.<br><br> Coach Deon Davids was forced to make three changes to his squad this week, as Schalk Ferreira (broken nose) and Henry Brown and Rudi van Rooyen (ankle injuries) had to return home due to injury, which resulted in the call-up of Xandre Vos, Stephan Greeff and Ruan van Rensburg.<br><br> Guinness PRO14 Round 6 fixtures:<br><br> Edinburgh v Toyota Cheetahs<br> Date: Friday, 5 October<br> SA time: 20h35<br> Venue: BT Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh<br> Referee: Marius Mitrea (FIR)<br> Assistant referees: Manuel Bottino (FIR), Ian Kenny (SRU)<br> TMO: Andrew McMenemy (SRU)<br> TV: SS1<br><br> Benetton v Isuzu Southern Kings<br> Date: Saturday, 6 October<br> SA time: 20h00<br> Venue: Stadio Monigo, Treviso<br> Referee: Craig Evans (WRU)<br> Assistant referees: Wayne Davies (WRU), Matteo Liperini (FIR)<br> TMO: Alan Falzone (FIR)<br> TV: SS1<br><br> Other Round 6 matches (SA kick-off times):<br><br> Friday, 5 October<br> 20h35: Glasgow Warriors v Zebre - Scotstoun Stadium, Glasgow<br> 20h35: Ulster v Connacht - Kingspan Stadium, Belfast<br><br> Saturday, 6 October<br> 16h00: Scarlets v Ospreys - Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli<br> 18h15: Dragons v Cardiff Blues - Rodney Parade, Newport<br> 19h00: Leinster v Munster - Aviva Stadium, Dublin<br><br> 2018-10-03 Three teams unbeaten in Cardinf.co.za Iqhawe Week http://www.fscheetahs.co.za/news.aspx?newsid=/5662/Three-teams-unbeaten-in-Cardinfcoza-Iqhawe-Week http://www.fscheetahs.co.za <br> Note to Editors: A rights-free image of the Golden Lions and Pumas preparing for a lineout in the Carfind.co.za Iqhawe Week at the Bill Jardine Stadium in Johannesburg is attached.<br> The Golden Lions, Eastern Province and the Griffons delivered another round of strong performances in the second round of the Carfind.co.za Iqhawe Week for Under-15andrsquo;s on Tuesday at the Bill Jardine Stadium in Johannesburg to remain the only unbeaten teams in the competition.<br> Hosts, the Golden Lions, and Eastern Province earned back-to-back wins as they defeated the Pumas 24-22 and Western Province 28-26 respectively, while the Griffons drew 15-15 against neighbours, the Leopards, in a tightly contested match. <br> A missed conversion by the Pumas on the stroke of fulltime saw the Golden Lions secure a narrow 24-22 victory in a nail-biting match, in which the teams were level on 17-17 for several minutes in the second half. The teams threw everything at one another from the outset, which resulted in a physical battle from start to end.<br> Both sides crossed the chalk three times in the first half and added another in the second, but the Pumas opted to touch down in the corner in the final minute, which made for a tough conversion, and this cost them a draw.<br> Eastern Province and Western Province were also involved in a tight tussle, as both sides ran hard on attack and tried to force their way onto the front foot. But a late try by the men from Port Elizabeth earned them a narrow 28-26 victory to remain unbeaten.<br> The team from Port Elizabeth trailed 21-19 at halftime, and ended up scoring only three tries to Western Provinceandrsquo;s four, but another good kicking display by Wessie Odendaal, whose two conversions and three penalty goals saw him rack up 13 points, proved crucial in the result.<br> The Griffons scored a try on the stroke of fulltime in their clash against the Leopards to register a 15-15 draw, as both sides crossed the tryline three times. The Leopards took a 5-0 lead at the break, but five tries were scored in an action-packed second half.<br> A strong second-half showing by Boland paved the way for their 22-5 victory against Free State. The teams were level at 5-5 at the break, but Boland stepped up their attack and defence, which saw them add three tries and deny the opposition from adding to their score. Emile Manuel and Jatean Arriesens finished the match with braces.<br> The Sharks also found their rhythm after the break against the Valke to power their way to a 21-12 victory, thanks to three tries and a solid defensive effort. The Valke touched down twice in the first half to build up an encouraging 12-0 lead, but they were unable to add to this as the Sharks stood their ground on defence as the match progressed.<br> The Blue Bulls bounced back strongly from their first-round defeat to pip Griquas 21-19 in a gripping clash, in which a successful conversion proved to be the difference on the scoreboard. Griquas held a slender lead early in the second half, but back-to-back tries by the Pretorians nudged them into the lead, which they held onto despite Griquas crashing over once more in the dying minutes.<br> A hat-trick by SWDandrsquo;s Nevon Freysenberg, meanwhile, steered them to a 31-28 victory in a hard-fought match against Border. SWD cruised to a 26-0 halftime lead thanks to their skilful attack, but Border fought back strongly after the break to score four tries to one by the George outfit. Their comeback, however, was too little too late.<br> The teams will have a well-earned rest on Wednesday, and return to the field on Thursday in the final round of matches, where the Golden Lions and Eastern Province will battle it out in the final game.<br> Carfind.co.za Iqhawe Week day two results (Tuesday, 2 October):<br> Leopards 15-15 Griffons<br> Blue Bulls 21-19 Griquas<br> Boland 22-5 Free State<br> SWD 31-28 Border<br> Valke 12-21 Sharks<br> Western Province 26-28 Eastern Province<br> Golden Lions 24-22 Pumas<br> <br> Carfind.co.za Iqhawe Week day three fixtures (Thursday, 4 October):<br> 08h30 andndash;Boland v Sharks (A Field)<br> 08h30 andndash; Free State v Valke (B Field)<br> 09h30 andndash; Blue Bulls v SWD (A Field)<br> 09h30 andndash; Griquas v Griffons (B Field)<br> 10h30 andndash; Western Province v Pumas (A Field)<br> 10h30 andndash; Border v Leopards (B Field)<br> 11h30 andndash; Golden Lions v Eastern Province (A Field)<br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br><br> <br><br> 2018-10-02 Toyota Cheetahs take on Cardiff Blues in Wales http://www.fscheetahs.co.za/news.aspx?newsid=/5661/Toyota-Cheetahs-take-on-Cardiff-Blues-in-Wales http://www.fscheetahs.co.za The Toyota Cheetahs arrive in the Welsh capital, Cardiff, Wales on Wednesday afternoon where they will be taking on Cardiff Blues on Friday. The match kicks off at 20:35 (SA time) with a live broadcast on SuperSport1. <br><br> The Toyota Cheetahandrsquo;s 39-39 draw against Ulster in round four marked the highest level score in the competitionandrsquo;s history and they will target their first win of season against the Cardiff Blues. Both sides succumbed to defeats in their first three matches, but will be inspired by vastly improved showings last week.<br><br> The hosts come off a comprehensive 37-13 victory against Ulster at home, which marked their first win of the season, while the Toyota Cheetahs were in the lead until the final minute against Ulster before a late try saw the match end in a draw.<br><br> The last two encounters between the sides were thrilling, with the Cardiff Blues winning 25-20 at home and the Toyota Cheetahs winning 29-27 in the return match, and with both sides determined to gain momentum in the competition, this clash could prove to be another cracker.<br><br> Good discipline will be vital for the Toyota Cheetahs, especially with the home sideandrsquo;s Gareth Anscombe being the third-highest pointsandrsquo; scorer in the competition, mainly due to his accurate goal-kicking, while they will also look to step up their defence after conceding 25 tries in their first four matches.<br><br> "Itandrsquo;s good to have continuity, which is an important factor for team to grow. With continuity we can learn from mistakes and grow for form a good base. This tour is important to give the next step towards winning and doing better away from home. Cardiff offers a big challenge. They are well prepared and we expect a fast game on the artificial ground." Said Coach Franco Smith.<br><br> Changes to the team from last week:<br><br> andbull; Ryno Eksteen will be starting on full back, replacing the injured Malcom Jaer<br> andbull; Daniel Maartens is new to the bench. <br><br> The following players are not eligible for team selection due to injury:<br><br> Quintin Vorster (ankle), Ntokosa Vidima (wrist), Dries Swanepoel (shoulder), Erich de Jager (bicep), Oupa Mohoje (knee), Luan de Bruin (ankle), Aiden Davis (laceration), Jasper Wiese (shoulder), Zee Mkhabela (ankle), Lloyd Greeff (ankle), Sibabalo Qoma (ankle), Ernst Stapelberg (concussion), Malcolm Jaer (back).<br> The team will be on route to Scotlandandrsquo;s capital Edinburg on Sunday, 29 September, where they will be facing Edinburgh on Friday, 5 October at 19:35 (SA time) on Murrayfield. <br><br> <br><br> <br> GUINNESS PRO14<br> Toyota Cheetahs vs Cardiff Blues <br> 28 September 2018.
