The Cats are happy to have flyhalf Andre Pretorius back, but they missed usual skipper Wikus van Heerden against the Bulls, in a local derby where they failed to live up to past performances.


While the Cats are hoping for their 2nd win of the season, the Force are looking for their first win EVER.


After their fantastic performance against the top of the table Crusaders last week, that win may just come against the Cats at Ellis Park. They key to winning this match for the Force will be coping with the altitude.
