Bloemfontein - The Golden Lions have convincingly beaten the Free State Cheetahs 73-31 in their Currie Cup match in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

Courtnal Skosan and skipper Jaco Kriel both bagged doubles as the Lions - who are still unbeaten this year - collected their sixth bonus point from eight games.

Cheetahs flank Vincent Jobo scored a hat-trick of tries as just reward for his team's positive attitude.

The Free Staters four-try bonus point means they are still very much in the hunt for a playoff berth.
