Fresh from their thrashing of competition newcomers the Melbourne Rebels last Friday night, the Queensland Reds now take on the Cheetahs from South Africa in Round 6 of Super Rugby.
A lot of pundits had written off the Cheetahs but after thier demolition of the New South Wales Waratahs, the Reds will not be taking them lightly.
The good news for the Reds is that inspirational captain, James Horwill is expected to make his return from injury. His presence will strengthen the Reds pack which is expected to be fully tested by the South Africans.
