The players and technical staff all underwent Covid-19 tests and none of them returned a positive result.
The Cheetahs will tackle their neighbours home-and-away over the next two weeks as they wrap their preparation for the return of domestic rugby.
The Cheetahs flyhalf, Tian Schoeman, who turned 29 today, told OFM Sport that this weeks’ match will be more about measuring their progress.
“We’ve been training for a long time now and it’s difficult to measure yourself against someone you train with every day.
“They know you and know what you are going to be doing.
“I think that it’s going to be a good measurement to see where you are standing as a team and what needs to be fine-tuned.
“Then next weekend we can hopefully start getting ready for the Currie Cup.
“We’re really excited, glad to be back on the pitch again and we just can’t wait.”
Next weekend the return-derby will be played in Bloemfontein.
