The Toyota Cheetahs will be heading to Welkom on Friday, 25 November 2022, for their second warm-up match against Down Touch Griffons at the HT Pelatona Stadium (Griffons Stadium), Welkom. Kick-off is at 15:00.
The Toyota Cheetah head coach, Hawies Fourie, shared his thoughts on their first warm-up game against the Cell C Sharks.
“It was a very physical game, exactly what we were looking for. The slippery ball made it difficult to play attacking rugby, and both teams scored maul tries.
We are happy with the quality of play we saw against the Sharks. All the players showed great effort, and we are glad to have had this opportunity.
We will focus on our attack for the next two weeks and how to play in the European conditions.” Said coach Hawies Fourie
