Cheetahs v Zebre (8-0-review)


This high-scoring contest had me wondering if it was Zebre who had joined Super Rugby.  Michael Bradley has the Italians playing attractive free-flowing rugby and they actually led 11-0 after 19m.  The Cheetahs with their skillful, pacy back three and strong-running forwards eventually overcame dodgy lineouts and other unforced errors to cross eight times though poor discipline by the visitors helped and they won’t be happy to have leaked five tries, including one at 79m despite the supposed “altitude factor”.
