The Bulls welcome the Cheetahs to Loftus Versfeld for a Currie Cup fixture on Saturday. The hosts currently top the table but the Cheetahs are the only side to have beaten the Bulls since the return of rugby. Could we see another upset?

Bulls Form


The Bulls have been in cracking form since Super Rugby Unlocked began. The Pretoria-based outfit won Super Rugby Unlocked having lost only one match, which was against Cheetahs.

Jake White’s men top the table of Currie Cup after the points were carried over from Super Rugby Unlocked. Last weekend the Bulls beat Western Province 22-20 at Newlands to get their Currie Cup campaign off to a winning start.

What makes that victory for the Bulls that much sweeter was the fact that they had to come from behind to win with 14 men. That was after Jacques van Rooyen was controversially red carded early in the second half.

Bulls Team News


Fly-half Morne Steyn returns to the team after serving his time in isolation due to COVID-19. In other changes lock Sintu Manjezi makes his starting debut against his former team.

Marcel van der Merwe and Gerhard Steenkamp get a start in the front-row as Trevor Nyakane and Jan-Hendrik Wessels shift to the bench.

Cheetahs Form


The Cheetahs currently occupy fourth position on the Currie Cup table. With that being the final playoff position they will be keen to hold onto it.

After a strong start to Super Rugby Unlocked where the Cheetahs won their opening two matches, their momentum came to a halt. The Bloemfontein-based outfit was forced to share the points against the Lions as the latter had too many COVID-19 infections to field a team.

Thereafter the Cheetahs had a bye and went into their match against the Sharks with no rugby in two weeks. Still, it was a match the Cheetahs should have won but lost 19-13. They followed that up with a 30-13 loss against Western Province.

The Cheetahs bounced back to beat the Griquas 28-9 in their last match to give themselves some momentum coming into the Currie Cup.

Cheetahs Team News


The Cheetahs have made two enforced changes to their starting line-up. Loose forward Aidon Davis misses out with a calf injury and in comes Victor Sekekete who makes his Cheetahs debut.

In the front-row Kutha Mchunu makes a start in place of Hencus van Wyk who is nursing his hamstring.

Bulls vs Cheetahs Head to Head


Cheetahs lead the Bulls 3-2 in their last five encounters. Their last match took place in Super Rugby Unlocked where the Cheetahs won 19-17 in Bloemfontein.

Bulls vs Cheetahs Match Up


This is a clash of contrasting styles with the Cheetahs keen on moving the ball into wider channels while the Bulls try to keep it tight. Set pieces are key to Bulls dominance but they have enough dangerous runners to finish off the chances that may come their way.
