Drotske names unchanged Cheetahs for Brumbies

Cheetahs head coach Naka Drotske has kept the same 22 that beat the Blues in Bloemfontein two weeks ago for their Super Rugby qualifier against the Brumbies in Canberra.

The Cheetahs had a bye last week so their last match was against the Blues
on the 6th of July.

The Bloemfontein side knew after the Blues match that they had qualified for
this week’s play off but had to wait until the Bulls had finished their matches
to learn where they would be playing.

“We have done all the hard work and now we are in the knock out stages.
It doesn’t stop here,” Drotske said.

The match will be the Cheetahs’ first Super Rugby playoff match since the Free
State side became a franchise in 2006.

The Cheetahs have never beaten the Brumbies – coached by former Springbok mentor
Jake White – in Canberra and will look to keep the momentum they gained from
their victory over the Blues in Bloemfontein two weeks ago.

The Cheetahs have won their last three matches on Australian soil and have
been on the winning side in four of their last six matches there since their
first success against the Waratahs in 2011.
