VIDEO: Cheetahs score historic first Pro14 try

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 05:50

While the Cheetahs were treated to a baptism of fire of sorts against Ulster in their Pro14 debut, they did play some properly good rugby.

In fact it was the South African franchise that opened the scoring on the night, and it was, as you might expect, all about pace and good handling.

The Cheetahs – joining from Super Rugby this term alongside compatriots Southern Kings – twice led in the first half through tries from Clayton Blommetjies and Makazole Mapimpi.

But, after Tommy Bowe had responded to Cheetahs’ first score, Alan O’Connor, Stuart McCloskey and Charles Piutau all touched down while Henco Venter was in the sin-bin for Cheetahs as Ulster accelerated clear at Kingspan Stadium.

Louis Ludik and Peter Nelson added further tries in the second half with Sergeal Petersen scoring for Cheetahs – who also had Aranos Coetzee yellow carded – between those five pointers.
