Cape Town - The Free State Cheetahs booked a home semi-final - and a possible home final - with a stunning come-from-behind win over Western Province in their final group stage clash in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

As it happened: Free State Cheetahs v Western Province

The Cheetahs won 38-33 after trailing 26-12 at half-time.

The Cheetahs finished top of the standings ahead of the Golden Lions - who will host the second semi-final next weekend.

For Western Province their playoff hopes hang by a thread and will need the Blue Bulls to deny the Sharks a bonus point in their clash later on Saturday at Loftus Versfeld.
