Bloemfontein – The Toyota Free State Cheetahs are looking to return to their glory days when they get their Currie Cup campaign underway in just under a fortnight.

Coach Rory Duncan, who lifted the famous Currie Cup in 2007, was last man to lead the side to victory in the final when they beat the Golden Lions 20-18 in Bloemfontein.

Duncan says he wants to learn from the past, and bring that same spirit back into the side, which saw them win two and draw one final in three-years.

Free State face the Kings next weekend in a warm-up match, before traveling to Nelspruit for their tournament opener against the Pumas, followed by the Griquas at home next week.
