RE: Who do you want to win between the cheetahs and bulls?

It has to be the Cheetahs for me. Like so many Super Rugby fans, I see them as the comps "darling" team. The way they go about their business has been through hard graft, humility and team comraderie/esprit de corps. These are all admirable/affable attributes and contributes to their "universal" popularity. Of all the non NZ teams, the Cheetahs are the only side I could be genuinely happy for if they managed to win the Super Trophy. They have the potential to be Super Rugbys first fairy tale, rags to riches team.
My heart desperately hopes the Cheetahs win (regardless of how this may affect NZ teams on the leader board) but my head says the Bulls are in ominous form and look determined to reclaim their place as SA's premiere rugby franchise. Afterall, they are SA's legacy team much like the 'Saders in NZ or Brumbies in Ausfailure. Anyways, I'm gonna go with my heart and call/hope for a narrow Cheetahs victory where the Cheetahs show HM and Morne that tries are the most productive way to apply pressure and secure points rather than the dull and myopic pursuit of penalty kicks.
