The final whistle goes and the Cheetahs have secured a comfortable victory whilst the Griquas take no points as they only scored three tries.

The tries are flowing thick and fast at the end now as Jaco Nepgen goes over for the TRY for Griquas and Prinsloo adds the CONVERSION to make it 45-21.

Griquas hit back with a TRY from lock Rory Arnold who barges his way over from close range. Prinsloo adds the CONVERSION to make it 38-14.


The Cheetahs get the bonus point with Rhule's second TRY. Sadie finds touch with a grubber and the Griquas lose the line-out and it is worked out to Rhule who finishes well. Du Plessis adds the CONVERSION to make it 38-7.


The Cheetahs right on top now and they come up with another great TRY. Watts finds Daniller with a great pass and Van Zyl is on hand to cross for the five-pointer. Watts adds the CONVERSION to make it 31-7.


Cheetahs come up with a great TRY to Rhule who goes over in the corner after getting a great pass from Sadie. Watts adds the CONVERSION to make it 24-7.

Second half is underway and despite the Cheetahs' dominance the Griquas are still within striking distance.


Some quick passing sees the Griquas break down the right wing and eventually it is Dalton Davis who crosses for the TRY. Brummer adds the CONVERSION to cut the Cheetahs' lead to 14-7.


A few reset scrums and eventually the Cheetahs are penalised so Griquas can clear it again.

Griquas on the attack now as they look for a response but the Cheetahs hold them up on defence and win a scrum so they can clear their lines.


Another big scrum from the Cheetahs and they get the PENALTY which Watts kicks over to make it 14-0.


Cheetahs straight back onto the attack and Daniller goes over the tryline but there was a knock in a few phases back so Griquas can relieve the pressure.


Griquas eventually infringe at the breakdown and Watts knocks over another PENALTY to make it 11-0.
