The Cheetahs heaped further misery on struggling Southern Kings on Saturday, triumphing 45-0 at Toyota Stadium to make it back-to-back Pro14 wins over their South African rivals.
Joseph Dweba crossed twice as the Cheetahs ran in seven tries against opponents who are stuck firmly at the bottom of Pro14’s Conference B with just seven points to their name.
They had prevailed in a tense finish in the previous round, clinching a last-gasp 31-30 victory at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
However, there was no drama in the return fixture in Bloemfontein.
Dweba’s brace sandwiched a try for Chris Massyn in the first half, with Jasper Wiese then securing the bonus point by touching down in the 56th minute.
The Kings crumbled in the closing stages too, not aided by Elrigh Louw spending 10 minutes in the sin bin, with Clayton Blommetjies, Rhyno Smith and Louis Fouche all going over amid the late carnage.
It’s all over in Bloemfontein and it’s @CheetahsRugby with the South African derby bragging rights again
A superb attacking performance from the hosts who held @SouthernKingsSA scoreless
