As our luck would have it, they have won their last two matches on tour in Australia and is playing at home for the first time in five weeks, so will be up for it. If we want to be a champion side, we will need to respond to this in a championandrsquo;s way."<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Bulls captain Pierre Spies: "They outplayed us in the opening round, mainly because our set-piece was not as good. We have worked pretty hard since then and I honestly think our pack can now be measured against the best ones out there, especially since we have the likes of Flip van der Merwe and Arno Botha back to full fitness.

DHL Western Province top the South Section log on 19 points though, with GWK Griquas second on 18.<br><br> <br><br> The high-flying SWD Eagles will be looking to for their first away win of the season after already beating the Cell C Sharks XV and Toyota Free State XV in George when they travel up the N2 to take on the EP Kings at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.<br><br> <br><br> Meanwhile, the KwaZulu-Natalians, at home in Empangeni to the Boland Cavaliers on Saturday afternoon, will be looking to reverse a three-match losing streak when they travel north up the coast.<br><br> <br><br> In the North Section, the Xerox Golden Lions will retake the lead at the top of the standings if they can beat the Leopards XV at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon.<br><br> <br><br> Current log leaders, the Vodacom Blue Bulls, have a bye and can slip back to third position if the Steval Pumas record a convincing victory over the Hino Valke at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Friday evening.<br><br> <br><br> This week, weandrsquo;re looking at former SA U20 speedster Sergeal Petersen, who is now with the Toyota Free State XV after making his mark for the EP Kings, and Xerox Golden Lions loose forward Ruaan Lerm.<br><br> <br><br> Attachment andndash; Vodacom Cup Pic of the Week: Clayton Blommetjies of the Toyota Free State XV and Siviwe Soyizwapi of the EP Kings contest a high ball during their high-scoring Vodacom Cup match in Bloemfontein last weekend, which the home team won 50-45.

If prompted, use the password "2015VodacomCup".<br><br> <br><br> Rising Star #13 andndash; Sergeal Petersen (Toyota Free State XV)<br><br> <br><br> To call Sergeal Petersen a try-scoring machine would not be amiss as this young flyer from the Free State continues to rack up the five-pointers since swapping Port Elizabeth for Bloemfontein.<br><br> <br><br> Considering that he is not yet 21, itandrsquo;s amazing to think that Petersen has been on the lips of rugby supporters in South Africa for a three seasons already.<br><br> <br><br> He first shot to prominence when he scored two tries in the first-ever Vodacom Super Rugby match for the Southern Kings, way back in 2013 as an 18-year-old, fresh from completing high-school less than three months earlier.<br><br> <br><br> Petersen ended up with four tries in eight Vodacom Super Rugby matches before he even turned 19 and was one of the Kingsandrsquo; heroes in 2013.<br><br> <br><br> At 1.71m tall and weighing in at around 84kg, Petersen makes up for his lack in size with lightning quick feet and speed to burn. He also knows his way to the try-line as he showed for the Junior Springboks last year, when he scored three tries in the Junior World Championships in New Zealand.<br><br> <br><br> Due to untimely injuries, heandrsquo;s had limited time at Absa Currie Cup level, but last year he was back to his best and in the Absa U21 Provincial Competition and amassed seven tries for EP.<br><br> <br><br> At the end of last season, Petersen made a move to the Free State after he had represented Eastern Province at every level from Under-13 up. He also played SA Schools in 2012, his final year at Grey high School in Port Elizabeth, where he scored three tries in as many games in the Green and Gold.<br><br> <br><br> Petersen made his debut for the Toyota Free State XV two round ago when they beat the Cell C Sharks XV in Kokstad and last weekend, in his second match for his new province, the speedster showed his new home crowd in Bloemfontein what he is capable of when he scored twice against his former team-mates from the Bay.<br><br> <br><br> Rising Star #14 andndash; Ruaan Lerm (Xerox Golden Lions)<br><br> <br><br> The 23-year old, Xerox Golden Lions loose forward Ruaan Lerm is somewhat of a veteran in Vodacom Cup terms, having amassed 21 caps for the Xerox Golden Lions in the last four seasons.<br><br> <br><br> He made his senior debut in 2012, less than two years after finishing school at EG Jansen in Boksburg, from where he represented the Valke at U16 and U18 levels.<br><br> <br><br> Lerm is a solid and mobile loose forward andndash; he stands 1.90m tall and weighs in at 103kg andndash; who can shift around in the back row between openside flank and No 8.<br><br> <br><br> This year, Lerm started with a bang and scored three tries in the opening round for the unbeaten Xerox Golden Lions. Heandrsquo;s played in four of their five matches, either at openside flank or No 8, and has a total of four tries this season.<br><br> <br><br> Last year, Lermandrsquo;s five Vodacom Cup tries were the most for the team from Johannesburg as they went all the way to the final, missing out on only one match during the season.<br><br> <br><br> With an abundance of loose forwards in Johannesburg, Lerm went to GWK Griquas on loan last year, where he made eight appearances in the Absa Currie Cup Premier Division andndash; his first taste of rugby at that level after being part of the Golden Lionsandrsquo; U19 and U21 squads between 2011 and 2013.<br><br> <br><br> He has since had a brief introduction to Vodacom Super Rugby, making his debut off the bench earlier this season when the Emirates Lions travelled to Durban to take on the Cell C Sharks, but the impressive Lerm is sure to get another opportunity at this level sooner rather than later.<br><br> <br><br> Round 7

http://www.fscheetahs.co.za/news.aspx?newsid=/2859/Junior-Boks-edge-Varsity-Cup-Dream-Team http://www.fscheetahs.co.za The Junior Springboks scored a morale boosting 31-24 win over a powerful Varsity Cup Dream Team on Tuesday evening at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch.<br><br> Playing in front of an appreciative crowd and in excellent weather conditions, the Varsity Cup selection lead 12-10 at the break after a dominant forward display in the opening half.<br><br> However, the Junior Springboks got stronger as the match progressed and they were rewarded for the excellent fightback with a well-deserved victory.<br><br> Dawie Theron, the Junior Springbok coach, admitted afterwards he was both relieved and encouraged by his teamandrsquo;s gritty performance.<br><br> "This match was exactly what we needed for our World Rugby Under-20 Championship preparations. The Varsity Cup side had several players who starred in previous years for the Junior Springboks, and they were a much more matured team," explained Theron.<br><br> He added: "We started poorly and the Varsity boys dominated us in the first half. However, we grew in confidence especially in the second half, and the players also managed to play with more composure. The match proved that we are in need of much more work before we can be satisfied with our preparations for Italy," cautioned Theron.<br><br> The national selectors will announce the Junior Bok squad for a two-match tour to Argentina early next week.

Is this how we repay our African brothers who supported us in the fight for our own freedom?<br><br> "The criminals and opportunists responsible for the violence and for fermenting intolerance have dragged the name of South Africa through the mud. We support the Governmentandrsquo;s efforts to root them out and demonstrate that xenophobia has no home in South Africa."<br><br> National captain Jean de Villiers added the voice of the Springboks to the presidentandrsquo;s call.<br><br> "As international sportsmen we meet and play with and against people of many different nationalities," said De Villiers. "It is a privilege that has enriched my life and that of all Springbok rugby players and this shocking outbreak is definitely not what Springbok rugby or we as South Africans represent.<br><br> "I would add to the presidentandrsquo;s call by asking everyone involved in rugby to add their voice to the opposition to these actions by it with a Tweet using the hashtag #sportagainstxenophobia, by positing to their Facebook page or just in conversation with everyone with whom they come into contact. We have to make it clear that these actions are not what South Africans stand for."<br><br> Mr Hoskins added that he trusted that the national outpouring of outrage against the attacks would lead to an immediate end to the violence and tension.<br><br> 2015-04-21 Toyota Cheetah Injury Report http://www.fscheetahs.co.za/news.aspx?newsid=/2856/Toyota-Cheetah-Injury-Report http://www.fscheetahs.co.za The Toyota Cheetahs lost two players during the Vodacom SupeRugby match against the Reds on Saturday. <br><br> <br><br> Heinrich Brussow: Fractured forearm.

The win concluded their best Australasian tour in three years.<br><br> <br><br> Back home, the Vodacom Bulls and Cell C Sharks delivered a typically hard local derby in Durban with the three-time champions from Pretoria ultimately winning by 17-10, with each team scoring a solitary try.<br><br> <br><br> The Toyota Cheetahs unfortunately could not build on their good win in Perth last weekend when they were beaten by 18-17 by the Reds in Bloemfontein.<br><br> <br><br> Down Under, the defending champions, the Waratahs, and the Chiefs recorded impressive victories in Wellington and Christchurch respectively.<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Super Rugby information:<br><br> 2015 MEDIA GUIDE APP | LATEST NEWS | RESULTS | FIXTURES | LOGS | TOP POINTS SCORERS | TOP TRY SCORERS<br><br> <br><br> Note: By clicking on the various headings, you will be able to access the breakdown for that specific match on www.sarugby.co.za, where team line-ups, replacements and run of play can be found.<br><br> <br><br> Force 6 (6) DHL Stormers 13 (10)<br><br> <br><br> It took some serious grind and wasnandrsquo;t flashy, but the DHL Stormers wonandrsquo;t sweat the small stuff as they finished their Australasian tour with a second win when they beat the Force by 13-6 in Perth on Saturday afternoon.<br><br> <br><br> The Capetonians had to dig deep defensively late in the match as the Force launched numerous attacks which couldandrsquo;ve seen them draw the game, but the DHL Stormers held on with the home team actually crossing the try-line without dotting down as the final whistle went.<br><br> <br><br> The visitors got the only try of the match as they were awarded a penalty try for crushing the Forceandrsquo;s scrum under the uprights early in the match. Thereafter the kickers dominated proceedings in a match that wonandrsquo;t be remembered for too long.<br><br> <br><br> The DHL Stormers showed a lot of character in this victory which means they will return to Cape Town with a haul of 10 log points from their four matches abroad, their best since 2012 when they won three encounters on the other side of the Indian Ocean. Last year the Capetonians lost all four tour matches and in 2013 they won only once.<br><br> <br><br> Scorers:<br><br> <br><br> Force andndash; Penalty goals: Luke Burton (2).<br><br> <br><br> DHL Stormers andndash; Try: Penalty try. Conversion: Demetri Catrakilis. Penalty goals: Catrakilis, Kurt Coleman.<br><br> <br><br> Cell C Sharks 10 (3) Vodacom Bulls 17 (8)<br><br> <br><br> The Vodacom Bulls were too strong for the Cell C Sharks moved and into the second position on the log after winning a bruising South African derby at Growthpoint Kings Park in Durban on Saturday afternoon by 17-10.<br><br> <br><br> The highlight of the first half was a superb try by Vodacom Bulls wing Francois Hougaard, who rounded off after a sniping blindside break by scrumhalf Rudy Paige. The interplay by the two men from Pretoria was good as Hougaard rounded off in the corner shortly before the break.<br><br> <br><br> At that stage the scores were tied at 3-3 after Fred Zeilinga and Handrandeacute; Pollard traded earlier penalty goals, but the Springbok flyhalf missed the conversion.<br><br> <br><br> The Cell C Sharks hit back immediately after the break and took a 10-8 lead when Zeilinga converted Springbok flank Marcell Coetzeeandrsquo;s try in the 42nd minute, but that was the last points scored by the home team.<br><br> <br><br> Pollard added three more penalty goals to his tally as the visitors took control of the match to record their second win over the Cell C Sharks in 2015.<br><br> <br><br> Scorers:<br><br> <br><br> Cell C Sharks andndash; Try: Marcell Coetzee. Conversion: Fred Zeilinga. Penalty goal: Zeilinga.<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Bulls andndash; Try: Francois Hougaard. Penalty goals: Handrandeacute; Pollard (4).<br><br> <br><br> Toyota Cheetahs 17 (10) Reds 18 (3)<br><br> <br><br> A late drop goal by the Reds, coupled with a missed penalty goal by the Toyota Cheetahs late in the match, saw the side from Queensland record only their second ever win in Bloemfontein on Saturday evening.<br><br> <br><br> Nick Frisbyandrsquo;s drop goal in the 73rd minute was the final points after an impressive second half by the Reds where they scored both their tries.<br><br> <br><br> Sadly for the home team, Joe Pietersen hit the upright with a penalty attempt in the 79th minute. It would be unfair to blame the Toyota Cheetahsandrsquo; pivot for the defeat though as the team from Central South Africa failed to build on a very good first-half performance after the break.<br><br> <br><br> Ryno Benjamin scored a wonderful try in the opening 40 minutes after the Toyota Cheetahs capitalised on the Redsandrsquo; inability to control the ball after a partially charged down kick, while Boom Prinsloo went over in the second half after a strong rolling maul.<br><br> <br><br> It was the Toyota Cheetahsandrsquo; sixth defeat of the season and they remain in 12 position on the log and injuries to a number of key players will make it hurt even more.<br><br> <br><br> Scorers:<br><br> <br><br> Toyota Cheetahs andndash; Tries: Ryno Benjamin, Boom Prinsloo.
