The captain of Cheetahs Francois Venter could be missing out on Saturday due to a hamstring injury.
Last weekend, Venter played hardly 22 minutes vs the hurricanes in Wellington before he got replaced by Niel Marais.
As per the news, Venter has Grade 1 hamstring tear & the decision on his availability will be made later this week.
Venter has been struggling with injuries in recent times and also missed first 4 games of this season due to an ankle injury. Again in his 1st game vs the Sharks, he suffered a hamstring on March 25th.
The Cheetahs will try to complete their tour on a high. Further, they have taken the punishments in NZ. They had lost 50-32 to the Blues (Auckland) and again by the defending champions last weekend 61-7.
The Bloemfontein men have only won 2 from their 12 matches in 2017.
They were beaten 38-17 by the Sharks in their 2nd home in Singapore last weekend & failed to stay within a pre-match handicap which had been set at 12.5 points. They languish at the bottom with only 1 win this season from all their matches played. This 1 win came in Tokyo 21-20 victory over the Bulls in Round number 7. In Rounds 10 & 11, the Sunwolves had obliged for plus handicap backers in 7 point defeats away to the Chiefs & Jaguares and earlier in the campaign the plus was the way to go in the 1st meetings with the Bulls & the Cheetahs in South Africa.
The Cheetahs are coming back from NZ where they have conceded a total of 17 tries in defeats to the Blues (50-32) & the Canes (61-7). They have not won since Round 3 when they beat same opposition. Their only other victory came in a home game against the Bulls in the previous week. The Cheetahs are just 4 log points better off than the Sunwolves. Hence, in theory a heavy defeat here could possibly see them slip down to the bottom of the combined South Africa Group.
