Chee­tahs suf­fer on both fronts

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Rugby -

The Chee­tahs were tak­ing it from both bar­rels over the week­end as West­ern Prov­ince (WP) were in a ram­pant mood back in South Africa. They de­stroyed the Free State side 57-14 in their Cur­rie Cup clash at New­lands on Satur­day.

That’s be­cause the Chee­tahs are ef­fec­tively play­ing two teams in two club com­pe­ti­tions, the Pro 14 and the South African Cur­rie Cup as well as the Rugby Cham­pi­onship. The home side, WP, dom­i­nated from the out­set and even­tu­ally outscored the side from Bloem­fontein nine tries to two.
