Rampant Cheetahs & Leinster cruise to huge Pro14 wins

The Cheetahs and Leinster continued their flying starts to the Pro14 seasons with emphatic victories on Friday.

They both remain unbeaten in Conference A, the Cheetahs putting Munster to the sword with a 40-16 win while Leinster thrashed Edinburgh 40-14.

South African side the Cheetahs only led 12-9 at the break but a second-half blitz ended the game as a contest, with Rhyno Smith rounding off the win after Dan Goggin crossed for a consolation score for Munster.

Leinster trailed 7-5 just over half an hour into their match at the RDS Arena but scored 35 further points as they matched the Cheetahs in making it three bonus-point wins from three.

Munster's defeat allowed Connacht to go top of Conference B with a 38-14 defeat of the Dragons.
