Cape Town - The Cheetahs proved far too strong for the Dragons in their PRO14 clash in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

When the final whistle sounded in a low quality clash, the Cheetahs ran out 38-13 winners.

Despite the win, the Cheetahs remained sixth (out of seven teams) in Conference A, while the Dragons stayed bottom of Conference B.

The Cheetahs' next - and final - match, they will host the Kings in Bloemfontein (Saturday, April 27 at 17:30).
