Cheetahs suffer on both fronts
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.
