Natal/Sharks only started to play decent rugby on a regular basis in 1990. That being said, they are the SA team that plays the most attractive rugby consistently. WP and NTvl will also always have strong support, getting better and worse as the teams performance fluctuate. This season is however quite fresh and new and anything might happen. Mike &co., you can read into the warm-up game what you want, but it was our first game, opposed to your second. We played with our fifth in line FH, who IMO will struggle to make the final squad. I did not even watch the game, but I think the Cheeters were pretty hard-up for a win, seeing that they went for a long range penalty in the end. I can't recall any cheetah fans on site, but if any, congrats...most probably the closest you'l get at beating WP this year.
