Cheetahs coach Hawies Fourie says his side are focused on scoring 50-point wins after claiming top spot in the Currie Cup this past weekend.
The Bloemfontein outfit made a bold statement with a 66-14 mauling of the Lions on Saturday. They subsequently dethroned the Sharks – the only other unbeaten team in the competition – at the summit, courtesy of a superior points difference.
And with the two high-flying sides on a collision course later this month, Fourie is challenging his men to ramp up their performances in the coming weeks.
“We expected a really tough game [against the Lions]. They had a few URC players that were on the bench last week in the starting lineup and we knew that they were desperate in the Currie Cup having not won a game yet this year,” the Free State boss said.
“But our mindset was 100% right for this game and we challenged ourselves. We said during the week that we wanted to score 50 points and we knew what the process was to do that and the guys stuck to it, so I was really proud of the performance.”
