Griquas vs Cheetahs

The Griquas welcome the Cheetahs to Kimberly in this crunch match in the Currie Cup. The home team are in fourth position with 21 points from their nine matches while the visitors are in top position with 41 points also from nine matches. Griquas are locked in a battle for a semi-final place and lead the fifth placed Pumas only by a single point with three matches left to play. The home team will attempt to do what no team has achieved this far in the competition and that is to beat the high flying Cheetahs.

TIP: Griquas have not been consistent this season and when they have had a win they have followed it up with a loss. They will be relying on their home ground advantage to carry them to victory in this match. The Cheetahs are aiming to continue their unbeaten run with victory in this match. It will go a long way to securing a home semi-final and final if they do progress to that stage. The bookies have the Cheetahs as favourites and I also tip them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.20, Playabets 1.20 and Sunbet 1.20


Griquas vs Cheetahs

  • The Cheetahs have won four of the last five matches between the sides.
  • The Griquas have won two of the last three home matches against the Cheetahs.

Latest results for both teams

The Griquas lost their last match 48-38 to the Bulls while the Cheetahs beat the Sharks 44-15 in their last match.


They have had an advantage in this competition as four of the other major teams have been involved in the URC competition which has meant that they have not always fielded their strongest teams in the domestic tournament. The Cheetahs owe much of their success to Springboks Ruan Pienaar and Frans Steyn who have led the team brilliantly. The visitors dominance this season is epitomized by them gaining five bonus points for scoring four or more tries in their matches. The Cheetahs will be too strong for the Griquas in all areas therefore I am predicting a Cheetahs win by more than 10 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

The Griquas will want to pay pack the Cheetahs for the loss in the reverse fixture when they were beaten 30-20. Although the Cheetahs have dominated this fixture in recent years the matches between these sides are always closely fought. The Griquas team have more to play for in this match as their playoff hopes hang by a thread but we still feel the Cheetahs are too strong therefore we backing them for the win. There are poor odds on the Cheetahs outright win therefore I suggest them on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-10.5) 1.91, Sunbet (-10.5) 1.89 and Playabets (-10.5) 1.81
