Cheetahs Raring To Go For First Home Game

The Cheetahs are gearing up for their first home game of the Vodacom Super Rugby season when they face the Blues in Bloemfontein on Friday.  The Toyota Cheetahs enjoyed a dream start to the campaign after a victory in Durban against the Sharks.  The Free State XV will be taking on Griquas in a warm-up game for the Vodacom Cup at 17:30 ahead of the main event kicking off at 19:10.

Out of the previous eight encounters between the Cheetahs and the Blues, the Auckland franchise has won six and Naka Drotske’s side the last two home games in 2010 and 2013.  Here is a historical breakdown (Cheetahs scores first):
