    Go Cheetahs...

    Interesting to see King And Slogs swap.

    Thought Slogs had a good game from 15 tbh.

    This is a poor day for the backs. Rain pouring everywhere and it should be a forwards game today. BJT Manera will need to rally his troops and J McDougal will surely want a win off the back of a narrow loss. A Kolar starts despite reports he has been unsettled in the Vikings camp. Subs are to be used for the first time in Seasonal Rugby history with WD Robinson coming on for BC Darts after 60 mins. SLO Graham has the ball, and is almost ready to kick off.

    The kick sways around in the wind and falls into the outstretched hands of R Gee. Brilliant teamwork from The Vikings. M Perry nabs the ball from the back of the maul and passes to AD Hunt. Hunt manages to knock it on. A sign of things to come with this weather? ND Short has the ball for the put in and MJ Edwards has hooked it back. SIA Yates has it at his feet and holds it nicely as Cheetahs drive. ND Short puts a short ball back to JEM Logan. LOGAN HAS BROKEN THE LINE, TRAMPLING B MAN ON HIS WAY. BC Jacobs has just flattened Logan! Ouch! BC Darts gets across for the turnover and now the Vikings have the ball. M Perry gets their quickly and pops a quick ball to DW Lewis. He makes excellent ground with an added 5 metres to the territory. P Retzel takes is from the ruck and charges down the blindside. Another 5 metres for the Vikings. BJT Manera picks and goes. No ground made. DR Armstrong wins the ruck on his own and M Perry has it set up on a platter. AD Hunt receives the ball and pops inside to A Vago. VAGO IS THROUGH HE HAS BROKEN THE LINE AND NO-ONE IS IN SIGHT! TRY TIME FOR THE VIKINGS! AD Hunt gets the kick under the posts and makes the score 7-0 to the Vikings. SLO Graham puts a high kick up, and it is affected by the wind and goes out on the full.

    P Retzel makes a poor throw which has bee gathered by S Verigotta. He taps it down to Short. Short goes for a drive. No ground made. The Cheetahs look to go wide, putting the ball through the hands of the back line. SM Green hits the line with a real sense of purpose and sets a fine target for his forwards. At the breakdown now, Short takes the ball and hands it to SM Morgan. Nice pace from Morgan and he makes a few metres. Chance of a turnover at that breakdown but support from the Cheetahs arrived on cue. McDougal calls for the ball and charges into the heavy traffic, but hits the ground hard before he can build up a head of steam. At the breakdown now. Slick delivery from that ruck by the Cheetahs. A nice pick-up through the middle by Das on that play makes positive yardage. The Vikings defence has been utterly destroyed over the past few phases, at the next ruck good ball at the ruck for the Cheetahs. The players scramble to the ruck. DR Armstrong is on his feet contesting the tackle ball, and he wrestles it away from the Cheetahs support as a turnover for the Vikings. The ref signals last play and the Vikings go all out on this last play. But the ball has been knocked on by Retzel and Half Time has been called by the referee.

    The start of the second half is about to get underway here at the home of the Cheetahs with AD Hunt to kick off for the Vikings. That's a high kick from Hunt out to the left. DW Lewis makes the catch and stays on his feet despite the buffeting as the two packs converge. The ref calls a maul, that's good forward play, as the Vikings patiently grind the Cheetahs downfield. A good advance here. Perry tries to smash his way through the close defence, gaining a few metres before getting tackled. The players scramble to the ruck. The Vikings have retained possession. The ball is being passes around well here. Jacobs penetrates through a half-gap to put the Vikings on the front foot. At the breakdown now. A controlled clean-out by the Vikings forwards there. The Vikings look to go wide, putting the ball through the hands of the back line. SJ Nova makes a very good run and sets it down on a plate. Another ruck is formed. CJ Devonshire makes a very positive run and almost makes it through the gap, but is only just stopped by the defense. Devonshire had no support there and has been turned over by the Vikings. A Vago has made a darting run up the middle and has handed the ball to Armstrong. DR ARMSTRONG IS THROUGH THE LINE AND HAS ONE MAN IN SUPPORT! HE OFFLOADS TO DARTS AND HE FINISHES IT OFF! Try for Darts and the Vikings. Under the posts again and Hunt gets it again. 14-0 to the Vikings now.

    WD Robinson has made his way onto the field and off comes the try scorer, BC Darts. He gets a standing ovation from the crowd. Graham holds the ball up for the kick-out. The Cheetahs bear down on Kolar after he takes Graham’s kick and stands firm. The Vikings player turns to meet his supporting teammates who bind on to him and set for the drive. The drive is controlled from the back, the Vikings are making slow progress, the ball will have to delivered to the halfback. Perry picks up the ball for a quick pick and go. He does well driving a few metres downfield for the Vikings before being taken down. The players scramble to the ruck. It is a turnover for the Cheetahs. But Lewis has been caught holding onto the ball, and the Cheetahs have a penalty. S Cambridge has come on for R Gee. Graham goes for 3 points and gets it. 14-3 to the Vikings now. The Vikings players take ages to get back to their positions for the kick off and the ref has to hurry them up. AD Hunt goes for a long kick and kicks it luckily into touch. They are playing the territory game now. The ref has called last play now and the Vikings have won. Cheetahs will be looking to close the gap now. But that is a wobbly throw from Edwards and the game has ended on a bad note. The Man of the Match award goes to A Vago for some brilliant runs and the game ends at 14-3 to the Vikings.

    He makes excellent ground with an added 5 metres to the territory

    DW Lewis makes the catch and stays on his feet despite the buffeting as the two packs converge.

    My job here is done.
