Cheetahs v Brumbies -Live
80 CHEETAHS 27-21 BRUMBIES
80 That's it! The Cheetahs win! The Brumbies collect a losing bonus point but they would have expected more. Thanks for joining us, cheers!
79 The Cheetahs win a scrum by holding up a Brumbies Maul. Now the hosts keep it tight as they try run down the clock.
78 DROP-GOAL, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 27-21. Unbelievable! Goosen hits the target with a drop-goal from inside his own half!
77 Whoa! Le Roux thumps a massive kick to find touch deep in the Brumbies half. Moore's throw isn't straight so the Cheetahs have a late chance to attack.
75 CONVERSION, WHITE. 24-21. Game on! This one is going down to the wire.
74 TRY, BRUMBIES, MOORE. The Brumbies set up a line-out from the penalty and Moore scores from a textbook maul.
72 YELLOW CARD, CHEETAHS, BRUSSOW. The Brumbies win a penalty and Brussow kicks it away, earning ten minutes in the bin.
69 A bit of kick tennis ends in a line-out to the Brumbies on the halfway line.
67 The Cheetahs find touch. The Brumbies look to spread it wide after a line-out. Brussow intercepts and the Cheetahs have numbers out wide but Watts drops it in contact.
65 Rayno Benjamin races up out of the defensive line and slams into Toomua, who spills the ball. Scrum to the Cheetahs just inside their own half.
64 The Brumbies are still very much in this game. They look dangerous with ball in hand as Carter finds some space before offloading to Moore. Brussow intercepts, allowing Watts to clear.
62 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE. 24-14. The Brumbies strike right back as Oosthuizen is penalised for trying to poach the ball on the deck. White hits the target from long range.
59 PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN. 24-11. Another scrum penalty against the Brumbies. Goosen slots it from straight in front.
57 The Cheetahs win a scrum penalty. Goosen finds touch on the Brumbies 22. The Aussie conference leaders are in trouble!
55 Heinrich Brussow is having another blinder! How can the Springbok coaching staff ignore him in this form? He steals another one on the deck.
53 CONVERSION, GOOSEN. 21-11. Great conversion from the touchline!
51 TRY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 19-11. Unreal! Elgar Watt has just come on but sends a perfect kick out wide, which Goosen plucks out of the air, beating Robbie Coleman, to score to the corner!
49 Goosen's conversion is....wide.
48 TRY, CHEETAHS, LE ROUX! 14-11. Brussow breaks from the back of a scrum and feeds Venter, who slices through. His long pass wide finds le Roux, who races home to score in the corner!
45 Christian Lealiifano tries a chip through after the line-out but it goes straight to Cornal Hendricks, who counters. A few silly mistakes costing the Brumbies.
43 White fails to find touch from a penalty to the Brumbies and Le Roux counters. The Cheetahs are penalised again in the Brumbies half but this time White finds touch just outside the Cheetahs 22.
41 Here we go for the second half! A bit of kick tennis early on ends with the Cheetahs in possession near half way.
40 CHEETAHS 9-11 BRUMBIES
40 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 9-11: Super strike from the number nine and the Brumbies go into the lead at the break. Despite being under the cosh for most of the half their class is shining through.
40 Scrum turns the way of the Brumbies and they win a penalty. Not enough time to go for touch so White will try to give his side the lead for the first time with a shot at goal.
40 Cheetahs looking to have the final say before half-time. Knock ons by both sides but the first one was from Moore. Last play.
39 Tough call for the TMO but in the end the Brumbies are penalised after White shoved Brussow in the face. Harsh call there as the Cheetahs clear.
38 Huge Brumbies pressure on the Cheetahs as Brussow infringes by putting his hands in the ruck. It all flares up between White and Brussow as the officials try to calm things down! TMO checking...
37 Kuridrani bundled into touch deep in Cheetahs territory. Lineout is rocky but Mohoje tidies up, before Venter produces a howling pass straight into touch. Brumbies lineout.
35 Hendricks tries to keep a deep Brumbies kick to touch infield, but to no avail. Worrying times for the Cheetahs as the Brumbies have a lineout in the 22.
33 TRY, BRUMBIES, COLEMAN! 9-8: Clever, clever play from the Brumbies. White drifts and sends a grubber behind the defence with Coleman the first man there for the try. Fine finish. White hooks the conversion wide.
31 Scrum penalty to the Brumbies, Coenie Oosthuizen the culprit. White's long-range attempt is wide to the right.
30 Lineout for the Brumbies is stolen, but Sadie knocks on stepping inside. Scrappy first half this.
28 Free kick given to the Cheetahs as the Brumbies try to engage early. Good relief for the home side.
26 Better from the Brumbies after White's box kick causes havoc. Wide attack as Kuridrani hits the hole, before the grubber from through is tapped back over the line by the Cheetahs. Scrum five Brumbies.
24 Brumbies working with slow ball and Mogg kicks the ball out on the full. Australian side just aren't getting going yet and that will give the Cheetahs hope. Super carry from Brussow but it ends with a turnover penalty for the Brumbies.
23 Toomua gets a great kick away to ease the pressure on the Brumbies. Cheetahs lineout - chip over the top from Le Roux but Mogg is smart and gets away from Goosen before clearing to touch.
22 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 9-3: The scrum-half makes no mistake with a super long-range strike! Brumbies on the board.
21 Instant reprieve for the Brumbies with a penalty inside the Cheetahs' half. White taking over from Lealiifano.
20 Again Lealiifano hooks the ball and misses the target. Brumbies struggling to get into this one but a long way to go.
19 Cheetahs pinged for crossing in midfield, handing Lealiifano a chance to score the Brumbies'' first points of the match. He lines it up in a central position around 40 metres out.
17 PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 9-0: Easiest of strikes from Goosen as he smacks it through for a nine-point lead.
15 YELLOW CARD, BRUMBIES, FARDY! Cheetahs can't get their first maul up and running but they win a penalty. Back into the corner, attacking the line. The ball comes loose but the Cheetahs recover, still in the 22. Brumbies playing with fire and that's a yellow card! Fardy goes to the bin.
14 Cheetahs doing all the running early on, as Sadie and Daniller both make good ground. Another penalty to the Cheetahs now as tempers fray. Goosen into the corner.
13 Stolen lineout and White clears to touch - wasted chance there by the home side. Next lineout is won by the Cheetahs and eventually Goosen lines up a long drop goal. It's a good strike, but wide to the left of the posts.
11 Burst from Hendricks down the touchline, but Mogg is there to deflect the chip backwards so the Brumbies can recover. White is bundled into touch and the Cheetahs have a promising lineout here.
10 Attempt at goal just curls round to the left from Lealiifano. Dropout for the Cheetahs.
9 Cheetahs offside in front of their own box kick, so it's a penalty to the Brumbies deep in enemy territory. Lealiifano lining up a shot.
8 PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 6-0: Excellent strike and the Cheetahs have a healthy lead now. Brumbies yet to get into the game.
7 Good pressure from the Brumbies in defence but it's illegally done, tackling Benjamin in the air. Goosen to go for goal.
6 Speight looks to be over for a try! But was there obstruction? TMO is checking the evidence and the score is ruled out. It's a Cheetahs penalty and Goosen clears.
4 Cheetahs secure the restart but then knock on through Venter trying to box kick under pressure. Scrum to the Brumbies on the 22.
3 PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN! 3-0: An early lead for the underdogs as Goosen strikes.
2 Attacking lineout for the Cheetahs and Strauss rumbles well around the corner. Building the phases edep in the 22. Penalty to the Cheetahs for not releasing and Goosen will go for the posts.
0 Goosen starts proceedings for the home side. Returned instantly by Mogg.
0 A dry night up in Bloemfontein as Adriaan Strauss leads out his side. It's bottom versus second and kickoff is minutes away.
0 Henry Speight returns to the wing for his first appearance since fracturing his jaw in Round 5. South African-born JP Smith returns to the bench in place of Ruaidhri Murphy in an otherwise unchanged team from the one which beat the Sharks in Canberra last Saturday.
0 Cheetahs boss Naka Drotske has made three changes to his starting line-up. Amongst the backs, Cornal Hendricks comes into the run-on side on to the wing for Raymond Rhule who drops down to the replacements bench while Shaun Venter replaces the injured Sarel Pretorius at scrum-half. Pretorius sustained an ankle injury during last weekend's 23=16 defeat to the Western Force in Bloemfontein. Meanwhile, in the forwards, Boela Serfontein takes over in the second row from Waltie Vermeulen who drops down to the bench.
0 Hello and welcome to Bloemfontein as the struggling Cheetahs host last year's finalists the Brumbies.

Phil Edwards explains why England's World Cup dreams will not be over if they lose their next two games
If England are to have any chance of launching a successful assault on the Everest that is next year's World Cup, then the widespread feeling seems to be that they simply have to win their next two games.
Highlights of all the Pro12 action, including Ulster's win over the Ospreys and Treviso's draw with Leinster.
It has been fairly even between Ireland and Australia in the last six meetings, three wins to Australia, two Irish victories and a draw, but recent form comes down in Ireland’s favour, with eight wins from nine contrasting to Australia's three victories in nine.
