Cape Town - The Glasgow Warriors were too strong for the Cheetahs in PRO14 action on Friday night despite missing a number of first team players.

With 11 first team regulars on Six Nations duty, the Warriors ran in five tries to secure a comfortable 37-23 win over the men from Bloemfontein.

The Cheetahs were in the contest for the most part and went into half time trailing 15-10, but they ran out of steam in the last quarter. 

The Cheetahs are still third in Conference A, looking good to make the tournament play-offs in their maiden season. 

They play Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium next week Sunday.


Glasgow Warriors 37 (15)

Tries: Niko Matawalu, Ruaridh Jackson, Siua Halanukonuka, George Horne, Henry Pyrgos

Conversions: Adam Hastings (2), Pyrgos

Penalties: Hastings (2)

Cheetahs 23 (10)

Tries: Malcolm Jaer, Clayton Blommetjies

Conversions: Niel Marais (2)
