Second-placed Cheetahs return to action after a break in the previous round and Hawies Fourie’s protege will have every chance to retain their unbeaten run as they travel to Cape Town for their encounter with WP.

The Free Staters have won all six games so far this season, while the Cape Town side have only been able to pick up one win from seven starts.

But it won’t be easy, as WP have won two of their last five meetings against Bloemfontein’s men. Earlier this year the Cheetahs won 24-17 at home in the opening weekend, but the last time the two sides met in Cape Town in August last year the hosts picked up a thriller 40-39.
