By the time the Free State Cheetahs kick off against the Griquas in the final match of Round 9 in the 2016 Currie Cup at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday, the visitors will know if they have anything to play for, with regard to a top four finish, and a place in the post-season play-offs. The Cheetahs, who are already assured of top spot in the table, following seven wins out of seven, and will enjoy home advantage through the play-offs, may well take the opportunity to rest key players ahead of the knockout phase of the competition. Although with the semi-finals not taking place until the 14th and 15th October, it may be a better policy to keep players ticking over.

However, the Griquas require the Sharks to beat the lions, and the Cavaliers to upset Western Province (WP), if they are to have an opportunity of stealing the vital fourth spot. A most unlikely sequence of results, based on the results from the previous eight rounds of the 2016 campaign. The Griquas hopes were virtually extinguished last weekend, when they lost 31-52 to WP in Kimberley, in what was virtually a play-off eliminator, and that after leading by four points at the interval.

The Free State Cheetahs will hope to give their hopes of making the post-season play-offs a massive boost on Saturday in Bloem, when they face the bottom of the table Griquas in Round 7 of the 2015 Currie Cup. Currently in fifth place, the Cheetahs trail the Sharks by a single point, but with their rivals having to travel to the Lions this weekend, there is a good chance for the Free State Cheetahs to leapfrog into the play-off places. That the Cheetahs are in the hunt for a post-season spot at all, says much about their determination and resilience. The fixture list has not been kind to them this season, with the first six matches seeing them have to play the Bulls and Western Province twice each. Although the Cheetahs have already beaten the Griquas this season, winning comfortably by 31-9 in Kimberley during Round 3, the visitors on Saturday are a much improved side since that match.

The Griquas remain rooted to the foot of the table, despite a first win of 2015 in Round 6 against the visiting Pumas. However, they remain in with an outside chance of making the play-offs if they can finish strongly over the last month of the regular season, and a win on Saturday would launch them onto the brink of the play-off positions.
