Revenge of the Cheetahs

THE Cheetahs got revenge for their first round Super Rugby loss with a 26-5 victory over the Lions in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

In the first round of this year's Super Rugby season the Lions and Cheetahs played each other in Johannesburg and the Lions edged the Cheetahs 27-25 and after six matches played that is still the Lions only win so far.

The Cheetahs led the match throughout but scored all but three of their points in the first half.

The Cheetahs went out to a 23-0 lead at half time and kept the Lions scoreless for 65 minutes until Cobus Grobbelaar scored a try which turned out to be the Lions only points.

The result means that the Lions drop down to 15th place below the Blues due to points differential and the Cheetahs move up to 11th.
