The Toyota Cheetahs got another perfect result in `Bloemfontein this weekend when they beat Ulster 63-26 on Saturday.

A hat-trick for Anthony Volmink secure an emphatic win two weeks in a row for the men from Bloemfontein, sending out a message that they are going for it this year.

Although many teams are without their World Cup players, the way the Cheetahs have played the past two weeks, is showing a hell of growth since last season poor performances.

Last week they beat Glasgow 48-14 after they also won the Currie Cup a few weeks earlier.

The home side ran in nine tries on the night securing another bonus point win and sitting nicely on top of their conference after two rounds. Ruan Pienaar again shown his class as he has done so many times for the Springboks.

His management of the Cheetahs game in open play and with his kicking game are brilliant. Aiming to the uprights is also not a problem from the Springbok kicking eight out eight conversions on the night.

To add to Volmink hat-trick, Rhyno Smith scored twice with Joseph Dweba, Louis Fouche and Reinach Venter all chipping in with a try a piece. The Cheetahs was also awarded a penalty try.

Ulster 26 points came from tries by Sam Carter, Hames Hume, David Shanaham and Crag Gilroy. John Cooney also succeeded with 3 conversions.

Next week the Cheetahs face another Irish side when Munster comes to Bloemfontein.
