RECAP: Stormers v Cheetahs
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our coverage of the South African Preparation match between the Stormers and Cheetahs in Cape Town.
Cheetahs coach Hawies Fourie, with no trophy on offer and no clear indication for what the future holds for his team, said they will use the opportunity to give his wider squad a run.
“We will rotate our squad and ensure the player get more experience,” Fourie said of his plans for the Cheetahs.
