The Highlanders coach Jamie Joseph says they're bracing themselves for another tough Super rugby assignment this weekend in South Africa.

Joseph was naturally delighted with his side's amazing comeback from 21 points down to beat the Cheetahs 36-33 in Blomfontein at the weekend.

Jimmy Cowan came from off the bench to score two tries, and Joseph says that was an indicator of a squad working for each other.

The Highlanders are 4th in the overall standings.
