          Yeah I watched most of it. Cheetahs are very good this season. Ruan Pienaar has them motoring nicely.

          Ulster defense was poor, and they only got 3 late tries in last 20 mins, and Cheetahs got a YC in that period too. The winger Volmink was excellent for home side, getting 3 tries and overall their defence was very strong.

          We’ll have our work cut out for us next weekend
          "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

          Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

            Yeah, watched it too. Cheetahs are a good side and very dangerous out wide. Lots of pace.

            Last 20 was very entertaining but the game was lost at that stage. End to end stuff. Hume was quite decent at 12, Marshall looked slow and much too heavy at 13.

                Started last week. He was ok but they were losing badly so was a tough game for him. Dunno if he played this weekend.

                  He didn't play this weekend. Not sure if injured, wasn't even on the bench.
