Toyota Cheetahs vs Reds  

 

The Toyota Cheetahs will be taking on the Reds on Saturday, 18 April on their home ground, the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein.  Springbok fullback, Willie le Roux will be sitting out this game due to an agreement with SA Rugby.  He will be replaced by Coenie van Wyk in the starting line-up.  That’s the only change to the team who beat the Western Force last Saturday in Perth. 

 

In a Vodacom Cup curtain raiser starting at 16:30, the Toyota Free State XV will be taking on the EP Kings.  Gates open at 15:30.   

 

Everyone is welcome at the Sparta Braai Area – come and buy a steak and braai it yourself.  Peter Mitchell will provide entertainment on the Castle Deck after the match.  

 

Ticket prices:  

R80 – Main Stand, R60 – Open Stand (adults) and R20 for students and kids. 

Tickets can be purchased online at fscheetahs.co.za or at the Ticket office at Gate 8 (Att Horak Avenue) at the Free State Stadium
