The Cats host the Chiefs this week in Johannesburg at the Ellis Park Stadium. Both teams lost last week so both will be desperate for the win.  The Cats leave go on tour next week so a loss today will make that tour a lot more painful.


The Chiefs arrived to the ground late by undersetimating the Johannesburg traffic. This will put extra pressure on them as they won’t have prepared properly.


I am very sad to tell you that Stuart Dickinson is today’s referee. Still it could have been Steve Walsh. Conditions are good if not a little warm.
