Cheetahs positive for Bulls match
Toyota Free State Cheetahs fullback, Willie le Roux, has said that there currently is good energy within his team, who are preparing for their fourth 2015 Super Rugby match against the Vodacom Blue Bulls at the Free State Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Since 2006, the Cheetahs have only won one out of 13 Super Rugby matches against the Bulls, which was a 15-9 win at home last year.
Le Roux has said that their recent wins against the Cell C Sharks (35-29) in Durban and the Blues (25-24) in Bloemfontein, have been very encouraging to the team and has boosted their confidence for future matches.
“A few areas we worked hard on during the pre-season is our defence and kicking game. The improvements in those areas have really made for us this season,” Le Roux said
“Our attack has always been good… the Cheetahs love attacking rugby, so with the step-up in our defence and kicking game, we have a more balanced game plan on the field.
“We are now winning those close games we’d usually end up losing. So the guys are growing in confidence, which is important going into our match against the Bulls this weekend.”
“If we continue improving as a team and build on our current momentum, we will definitely put up a big challenge. We’re definitely going for the win this weekend,” he added.
