Griquas vs Cheetahs Predictions


The Cheetahs are missing a host of players through injury and COVID-19 so will field 13 debutants on Saturday. This should give Griquas the edge so I’m backing the hosts to win.

  • Griquas beat the Cheetahs 23-19 in their last match.
  • Cheetahs are missing 17 players due to injury and COVID-19.
  • Cheetahs have lost their last 2 matches.

Head to Head


Cheetahs have won their last four competitive matches against Griquas. Two weeks ago the two clashed in a friendly encounter which was won 23-19 by Griquas. Both teams played under strength sides.

Griquas Form


Griquas come into round two of the Currie Cup with little confidence. They finished bottom of the table in the 2020 Currie Cup season, failing to win any of their 12 matches.

Last week Griquas opened their Currie Cup campaign with a 30-16 home defeat to the Sharks. The first half was a tight affair but the Sharks superiority told as the match went deeper.

Griquas Injuries & Team News


The Griquas could lineup with the same side that lost to the Sharks at the weekend. They have no injury concerns.

Cheetahs Form


The Cheetahs narrowly missed out on a semi-final birth in the 2020 Currie Cup, finishing fifth. They will look to go one better this time around, especially with the bigger unions missing some of their top players.

The Bloemfontein-based outfit had a bye in round one last week so their campaign starts this week. They have a good record against their cross-town rivals but need to up their game after a few disappointing friendly results.

Cheetahs Injuries & Team News


The Cheetahs have named 13 debutants in their squad due to injuries and positive COVID-19 tests.
