Big south-african derby.
The Bulls are coming back from their trip in New Zealand and Australia which was a big failure with 4 losses and many injuries.
Because of those losses, they don't have the choice today and desperately need to win if they want to keep their chances to do the play-offs.
At home, this team is very strong and hard to play with their conservative and pragmatic rugby. So far this season at home, they won 3 matchs and drew one.
There are many injured players, but the Bulls are used to do with it now, and moreover the team who will play this afternoon is quite similar at the one who played early in March and who won against the Lions and the Blues.
The Cheetahs just did a great win at home against the Stormers, but now they are on the road and this team has been poor so far at away, indeed they lost all its 5 matchs at away and didn't succeed to take a single defensive bonus point.
The Cheetahs have also many injured players such as Labuschagné, Van der Walt or Oosthuizen, so I would say that it balances Bulls's absences.
As I said, the Bulls are very strong at home, they have one of the best ratio of wins at home since creation of Super Rugby, this ratio is also great during those south-african derbies, indeed they have a winning rate more than 80%, knowing that the Cheetahs never won in Pretoria. Besides, the Cheetahs won only one match against the Bulls since both teams play Super Rugby knowing that they met 12 times, it shows that the Cheetahs have problems against the conservative rugby of the Bulls.
So, I think that the Bulls will win this match, I try their win by more than 5 points.
