    Can see the Force maybe stealing this. They probably should but you can never bet against them losing a game they coulda/shoulda won.

    Cheetas to win by ten, Force looked a bit weak up front and in the back row especially last week against the sharks. Cheetas aint the best side but if they can batter them up front it should tie in the dangerous Force backs.

    Wow, what a game....epic defense from the Cheetahs...I have to say they probably deserved to win it....but in the end, it was never in doubt :p 16-15 to the Force with a penalty with 82 minutes on the clock for the Force to win it...

    lol, the Cheetahs can't seem to buy a win atm.. Reminds me of the Force in their first season..

    Cheetahs deserved the win imo, although, with the new laws, they seemed to think they could kill the ball and get away with only a free kick.. Silly play in front of the posts..

    Force made a few forward passes though towards the end that never got called up :eek:

    Well done to the Force though, and their tenacity towards the end.

    After our bad luck with refferees call some were BOUND to go our way eventually :p
     
  10. I'm not being funny, but have there been any changes to the laws on obstruction? Giteau's try is blatent crossing which I personally cannot believe the referee let go. If I were a Cheetahs fan I'd be pretty ****** off after seeing that.

    It didn't affect the play at all, the tackler on Giteaus left was unobstructed and could have tackled him, the rest were pretty much out of play and wouldn't have gotten to Giteau anyhow....

    It doesn't matter whether a dummy runner makes contact with a defender or not - Giteau ran straight behind a guy, unsighting and distracting the defender. You can't get crossing much more blatent than that, whether he would have outpaced the defender is besides the point. I'd be livid if I was on the receiving end of that call (or no-call).

    I completely agree on the Giteau try being blatant crossing, Cheetahs were really unlucky to lose that, but you gotta hand it to the Force for actually winning the game in the 82nd minute.
     
  15. Even although the Force had alot of the ball, the Cheetahs had some great chances to win. The ending would have been just gutting, well to be honest i was supporting them, they could and should have won 2 out of 2. But now they may well be wooden spoon contenders.

    The pass was made far before contact with defenders and if you look at the replays the pass itself was not blocked, in clear viewing of the defenders,there was no deception what-so-ever...you would think the Saffa commentators would have picked up on it if something was untowards?
