79 CONVERSION, FS CHEETAHS, SMIT! 50-26. Smit adds another two-pointer to give some respectability to the score!
78 TRY, FS CHEETAHS, LE ROUX! 50-24. The Cheetahs attack close to the Sharks' try-line and when Boom Prinsloo is stopped just short of the line AJ le Roux gathers and crashes over from close quarters!
76 CONVERSION, SHARKS, ZEILINGA! 50-19. Zeilinga adds the extras which brings up the home side's half century of points!
75 TRY, SHARKS, REINACH! 48-19. Smit drops back and gathers a loose ball in front of his try-line but he is dispossessed by Cobus Reinach who then scores under the posts!
71 The Cheetahs put huge pressure on the Sharks at a scrum. The hosts capitulate under the pressure and Sarel Pretorius goes onto the attack with a tap penalty.
68 CONVERSION, SHARKS, ZEILINGA! 43-19. Zeilinga adds another two-pointer to give the home side an unassailable lead!
67 TRY, SHARKS, DANIEL! 41-19. The Sharks launch a drive from a line-out and Cooper breaks away but is stopped just short of the try-line. Daniel reacts quickest and picks up and goes and gets in for the hosts' sixth try!
66 Schalk van der Merwe is pinned for illegal scrummaging. Zeilinga kicks for touch and puts the ball out 10 metres from the Cheetahs' try-line.
64 Cobus Reinach gathers the ball under great pressure, at a scrum close to his try-line, and is caught in possession by two defenders. The ball comes out to Zeilinga, who boots the ball upfield where Rayno Benjamin knocks on close to the halfway mark.

54 Zeilinga makes up for his earlier error with a fine touchfinder which sails into touch midway between the halfway mark and his 22-metre line.
53 Zeilinga tries to get his side onto the front-foot with a cross-field kick, 10 metres outside the Cheetahs' 22, but his effort is over-cooked and goes directly into touch.
50 McLeod secures turnover ball at a ruck and offloads to Mvovo, who sets off on a run. He is tackled by Smit and knocks on in the process.
48 The Cheetahs set up a couple of phases with their forwards, just inside the Sharks' half, and Trevor Nyakane and Hercu Liebenberg are both prominent. The ball then goes wide to the backs but they make little headway.
45 TRY, SHARKS, WHITEHEAD! Tim Whitehead gathers a wild pass from Zeilinga and spots a couple of forwards in front of him and pins back his ears before scoring in the right-hand corner! That secures the Sharks' try-scoring bonus point!
43 PENALTY, FS CHEETAHS, SMIT! 26-19. Smit gets the first points of the second half after Charl McLeod is pinned for an infringement at a ruck.
41 Watts gets the second half under way with a deep kick which Kyle Cooper gathers. He immediately sets up a ruck inside his 22.
40 Sharks 26 Free State Cheetahs 16
40 The Sharks take a tap penalty and the ball comes to Coetzee, who shows great leg strength as he drives over the line. He is held up off the ground, however. At the resulting scrum, the Sharks front row is penalised for illegal scrummaging. Watts boots the ball into touch and the referee blows his whistle to indicate half-time. The home side have dominated in most facets and deserve their lead but the Cheetahs fought back well and are still in this game.

33 CONVERSION, FS CHEETAHS, SMIT! 23-13. Smit adds the extras to narrow the gap to 10 points!
32 TRY, FS CHEETAHS, RHULE! 23-11. Rhule rounds off after Sadie and Watts display brilliant hand-speed, in the build-up!
30 The cheetahs are trying desperately to get back into this game. They set up a couple of phases with their forwards, but referee Marius Jonker calls them back after one of the Sharks' forwards knocks on at a breakdown.
27 PENALTY, SHARKS, ZEILINGA! 23-6. Zeilinga extends the Sharks' lead again after Raymond Rhule is caught holding onto the ball on the ground.
25 CONVERSION, SHARKS, ZEILINGA! 20-6. Zeilinga adds the extras to push the hosts further in front!

17 SP Marais spots a gap behind the Cheetahs defence and launches a 40 metre cross-field kick which rolls into touch inside the visitors' 22!
15 TRY, SHARKS, MVOVO! From the back of the scrum, McLeod throws a pass to Zeilinga who offloads to Mvovo. The big wing steps past two defenders before scoring in the left-hand corner!
13 Johann Sadie has a clearance kick inside his 22 charged down by Peet Marais and Watts regathers in front of his try-line! He is under pressure from two defenders and is forced to carry the ball over his try-line!
12 PENALTY, FS CHEETAHS, SMIT! 5-3. Riaan Smit gets the visitors' first points after Akona Ndungane and Mvovo are pinned for straying offside at a ruck.
9 Heimar Williams takes the ball into contact, just inside the Cheetahs' half, but he is held up by three defenders. Mtembu comes to his rescue but knocks on in an attempt to rip the ball from Williams' grasp.
7 The Sharks attack with their backs and SP Marais spots a gap and stabs through a grubber kick. Elgar Watts gathers, inside his 22, but is forced to boot it into touch under great pressure from Lwazi Mvovo.
5 The Cheetahs try to launch an attack from a line-out on the Sharks' 10-metre line. The Sharks put pressure on them, however, but the visitors gain a reprieve when Pieter-Steph du Toit knocks on at the set-piece.
3 TRY, SHARKS, MARAIS! 5-0. The Sharks are on the attack close to the Cheetahs' try-line. Tera Mtembu and Kyle Cooper carry strongly until Charl McLeod throws a long pass to SP Marais who scores the first try of the match!
1 Fred Zeilinga gets us underway with a deep kick which Rian Smit gathers inside his 22. He kicks for touch and puts the ball out just inside the Sharks' half.
Free State Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske made only one change to his side that beat the Golden Lions narrowly last weekend. Lock Lood de Jager has recovered from a concussion and will reclaim his place in the starting line-up at the cost of Teboho Mohoje, who has been moved to the replacement bench. Number eight Philip van der Walt has recovered from a shoulder injury which kept him out of the clash with the Lions, but Drotske placed him on the replacement bench, with Davon Raubenheimer keeping his spot in the run-on loose trio.
Returning Springbok flank Marcell Coetzee has been drafted straight into the Sharks' starting XV for this encounter. In a major overhaul to the team that beat Griquas last week, Tera Mtembu starts in the back-row with Coetzee, while Keegan Daniel takes over the captaincy and the number eight jersey. This means that Jacques Botes and Jean Deysel get a break and both drop out of the matchday squad. There's another rotational switch as the coaching team have brought Fred Zeilinga back in at fly-half for Butch James. In two more changes to the back-line, Odwa Ndungane returns on the wing while Heimar Williams is recalled to allow Louis Ludik the opportunity of getting a well-earned rest.
Good day and welcome to Kings Park Stadium in Durban for this Currie Cup clash between our hosts, the Sharks, and the Free State Cheetahs. Don't go away! We'll return shortly with team news.
