The Highlanders have only played one game this season and that ended up in a 41-27 hammering by the Chiefs and they will be looking for a massive improvement this weekend.

The Cheetahs are rock bottom of the Super Rugby ladder with two defeats and they will need to get back on the horse with a win as soon as possible.

Their defeats so far this season have come against the Sharks and the Chiefs.

The Highlanders can be backed at 1/8 with Bet365 to take maximum points, while the Cheetahs are n 11/2 shot. The draw is on offer at 33/1.

The Highlanders should be fully rested following last weekend’s bye and they welcome Andrew Hore, Colin Slade and Brad Thorn back into the team.

The Cheetahs have named Heinrich Brussow on the bench after recovering well from a shoulder injury and the flanker is expected to feature at some stage.

The Cheetahs have been handed a 15 point head start on the handicap betting market at a price of 10/11 with BetFred, while the Highlanders -15 is an even money shout with Sportingbet.
