READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the Currie Cup Round Seven encounter between the Cheetahs and Sharks in Bloemfontein.

The Cheetahs will be looking to build on the momentum they’ve created with wins in their last two matches when they host the Sharks on Saturday.

When these two sides met shortly after Christmas last year, also at the Free State Stadium, the Free Staters caused a minor shock as they beat the KwaZulu-Natalians by 37-10, scoring four tries in the process and restricting their visitors to only one.
