    The Western Force (ranked 7th) take on the Cheetahs (ranked 12th) in WA.
    Starting to get to the do or die part of the super 14 for the Force, a win here still means they have a shot at securing their first ever semi’s spot.

    For he Cheetahs though a win would be welcome about now to keep a positive outlook for next year (as think that their year is just about over).

    Thinking that the Cheetahs could pull this off.

    Nah, I reckon the Force will be just too good for the Cheetahs, the boys are missing Bloem too much. If the Cheetahs play to their true potential, it could be pretty close, but I`m not too sure that there is much left in the tank for the Cheetahs. They`ve been utterly devoid of direction at the back, and concerningly have also started to leak tries.

    Maybe last week they reached their absolute nadir, I certainly hope so, but I can`t see them winning this one, unless of course Juan Smith makes 40 tacles, scores 3 tries and wins every single line-out ball. He`s been their only go-to man, and one man sure ain`t gonna beat the Force all by himself.

    How was McIsaac's passing! Bring him on at 1st5 I say.
    Easy win for the Force... they'll need that to go forth with a positive attitide for next year.

    What were the Cheetahs thinking? Bullshit game from them, poor tactics in the first half, very poor - kicking the ball with no one chasing... crazy

    Boys against men really, Force made them look like a bunch of schoolboys playing against the wallabies or something :mellow:

    Luckily for the cheetahs the reds and warratas were **** this whole season so they might still not get the wooden spoon ;)

    actually I must say the warratahs have really started playing in the last 2 games.
