The Cheetahs themselves may have been out of contention for a play-off place in Super Rugby 2015 for some while now, but they can certainly have a massive effect on who does qualify, when they face the reigning Champions, the Waratahs on Saturday in Bloemfontein. However, since beating the Stormers in an upset 25-17 success in Bloem back in Round 12, the Cheetahs have lost three games on the trot, and have conceded at least 40 points each time.

Despite last weekend's defeat in Johannesburg to the Lions 22-27, the Waratahs just about clung on to the top position in the Australian Conference. They will be grateful to face a Cheetahs side lacking in form and confidence, given their poor results in recent seasons on South African soil. The Waratahs beat the Stormers in Newlands in 2014, but that was one of only two wins in the Republic that they have managed from their last 12 attempts.

Overall in Super Rugby, the two sides have managed four wins each in head to head contests. The most recent meeting in Bloem back in 2012 produced a thrilling encounter, which the home side sneaked by 35-34, scoring five tries to the visitors four.
