Cheetahs pay hefty price for Waratahs victory

The Cheetahs first ever away from South Africa victory came at a price as it has been revealed that two players will head home injured.

Captain Andries Strauss who joined the Cheetahs from the Sharks this season injured his groin in the match and will return to South Africa with flanker Frans Viljoen who has a hamstring injury.

Strauss was the Cheetahs fourth captain in their five matches played so far this season and it is now expected that Wilhelm Steenkamp will be named captain against the Reds this weekend.

Steenkamp took over the captaincy of the Cheetahs in the victory over the Cheetahs 15 minutes after kick off.
