LIMERICK, Ireland – The Cheetahs were blanked as they suffered a heavy 38-0 defeat to Munster in their PRO14 opener at Thomond Park in Limerick, Ireland on Saturday.
The South Africans were dealt a massive blow in their plans to start the new campaign with a win when captain Oupa Mohoje was forced off the pitch.
The Springbok flank left the pitch with a knee injury, which saw Aidon Davis come on in the 14th minute.
Shortly thereafter, Munster got the ball rolling, with centre Rory Scannell crossing the whitewash.
Eight minutes before the break, David Kilcoyne etched his name on to the score-sheet, with JJ Hanrahan adding the extras to help the home side into a 12-0 lead at the break.
