The Cheetahs remain unbeaten in 2019 after a dominant PRO14 victory over Italian side Zebre at the Free State Stadium on Saturday.
The Cheetahs ran in nine tries in a 61-28 victory. They led 26-7 at half-time.
The men from Bloemfontein are now unbeaten in three games in 2019.
However, they still have a lot of ground to make up and remain sixth in Conference A, with five wins from 13 games.
The Cheetahs were also dealt a blow late in the game when replacement lock Justin Basson received a red card for making contact with the neck area of a Zebre player at a ruck.
The Cheetahs’ next game is at home against the Kings next Saturday (February 2). Zebre’s next game is at home against Irish side Leinster on Saturday, February 16.
