Cheetahs 38 - 13 Dragons

Cheetahs fly-half Tian Schoeman scored 18 points as his side claimed a bonus point win over Dragons in Bloemfontein.

The hosts' convincing 38-13 win maintained sixth place in Conference B, while Dragons missed the chance to move above Southern Kings in Conference A.

After an even opening spell Henco Venter put Cheetahs in command shortly before the break when he burst over for the first of his side's five tries.

Dragons drew level through Taine Basham and even went in front through a Josh Lewis penalty before Cheetahs belatedly seized control.

Shaun Venter crossed to grab back the lead and Schoeman also crossed to boost a tally which would include five conversions and a penalty.

Substitute Louis Fouche dotted down to ensure Cheetahs the bonus point before Rabz Maxwane also went over to complete an ultimately dominant performance.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
