Unbeaten Toyota Free State u/20 To Be Tested By Leopards u/20


The Leopards u/20 travel to Bloemfontein still looking for their first win of the season. An unbeaten Cheetahs u/20 is waiting for them in what promises to be a battle between speed and flair against brute force.

The Cheetahs u/20 had an easy first game in the u/20 SARU Cup when they travelled to Gqerberha for an easy 63-13 win. Although the Leopards lost to the Vodacom Bulls (28-74) and Lions u/20 (14-24) in the first two rounds of the competition they showed during both games that they are not easy prey.

The Leopards will look to keep the game slow and extremely physical will test the hosts, however, the speed and flair of the Cheetahs might just prove to be the deciding factor.
