Cape Town - The Cheetahs have beaten the Southern Kings for the second week in succession in the PRO14 but Saturday's 45-0 victory came a lot easier than their first encounter.
Three first half tries from Joseph Dweba (2) and Chris Massyn as well as a conversion by Ruan Pienaar saw the Bloemfontein-based franchise into a 17-0 half-time lead.
In the second half, the Cheetahs continued their domination, running in further tries through Jasper Wiese, Clayton Blommetjies, Rhyno Smith and Louis Fouche, four of which were converted.
Up next, the Kings are away to Munster on February 14 while the Cheetahs are away to Leinster the following day.
