    "body": "Cheetahs captain Torsten van Jaarsveld has called for better decision making from his players after a string of yellow cards in their last two matches. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nThe Cheetahs received three yellow cards in last Saturday\u2019s Pro14 win over the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nLock Justin Basson, prop Charles Marais and No 8 Junior Pokomela all spent time in the sin-bin but the men from Bloemfontein still managed a comfortable 45-21 victory. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nHowever, in the previous weekend's clash in Italy, yellow cards for hooker Van Jaarsveld and scrumhalf Shaun Venter proved costly in a 27-21 defeat to Treviso. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nIn an interview with <em>Netwerk24<\/em>, Van Jaarsveld said the yellow cards were down to the wrong decisions made at the wrong time. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\n\u201cIt\u2019s all about timing, especially when attempting to turn over possession. We\u2019ll simply have to make much better decisions.\u201d <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nCheetahs coach Rory Duncan said the yellow card issue will be discussed with the players. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\n\u201cWe\u2019re having a look at the decisions made and how we got those yellow cards. We\u2019ll have a look so we don\u2019t find ourselves in another position of being down to 13 men in the final 10 minutes.\u201d <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nThe Cheetahs are currently third in the Pro14's Conference A, with seven wins from 12 matches. <p><\/p>\r\n\r\nThey host the Kings in a return fixture at the Free State Stadium on Saturday (5pm kick-off).",
