Blues brothers down struggling Cheetahs
Rieko Ioane levelled things up as Blues ran in 24 points before the break, Scott Scrafton touching down before Akira Ioane added a third try.
Their advantage at the break was six points but after the restart Blues quickly set about extending their lead, the Cheetahs’ defence unable to keep them at bay – the visitors missing 24 tackles as they wilted under the pressure.

Buoyed by seven wins on the spin Lions picked up the tempo after the restart and that was enough to claim another victory.
Kwagga’s Smith sensational 80-metre break brought the only try of the game after 55 minutes, with Elton Jantjies and Andries Coetzee doing the rest of the scoring with the boot to see them join Crusaders on 46 points – albeit having played a game more.
