The Cheetahs travel to Bournemouth to face the Bobcats this Sunday. The teams will be familiar with each other having faced off home and away last season, with Hertfordshire emerging victorious on both occasions. Bournemouth have had a decent start to 2018, beating Hastings and Swindon by similar scores to the Cheetahs. Their sole loss so far came against the Portsmouth Dreadnoughts, who are currently leading the SFC 2 South.
Ahead of the clash, Head Coach Craig Barnes said “This game has serious implications for the conference. Whoever wins will be putting themselves in a strong position to challenge for the SFC2 South title. We have prepared diligently, and we are ready to play hard on all three sides of the ball. We can’t wait to get started!’”
Britball media outlet Double Coverage is predicting a competitive game, giving the slight edge to the Cheetahs.
