Cheetahs bury Bulls

The Cheetahs lead the Currie Cup after five rounds thanks to a late escape against the Bulls in Pretoria.

Attack won the day over defence in a 81-point try-scoring festival as the Cheetahs scored in the final minute to win 41-40.

It was the Bulls third defeat in five matches.

The Cheetahs have won four from five matches. Their only defeat was earlier in the week to neighbours Griquas.
