Rugby15 was fortunate to attend a media session earlier today at the Vodacom Park Free State Stadium. Vodacom coach Naka Drotske and assistant coach Hawies Fourie answered the questions from media representatives on the upcoming clash against the Vodacom Bulls.
It is clear that there is no uncertainty amongst the Vodacom Cheetahs pertaining to the challenge presented by the Bulls. The coaches are quietly confident that they are well prepared and no funny techniques are required to inspire the Vodacom Cheetah players – they will be ready to give it their all come Friday evening!
The Vodacom Cheetahs have included in their preparations sessions with top referees and will not be caught off-guard with the new interpretations in the contact situations. They expect referee Jonathan Kaplan to be strict in his interpretation of the laws and believe that our top referee will be strict at scrum time and reward the dominating scrum.
Outside the media session there were final preparations taking place in and around the stadium. Fans will be able to enjoy this clash in a world class Vodacom Park! Tickets sales are going well and people were lined up outside the ticket offices. This will be a clash not to be missed by the true rugby supporter!
