The Cheetahs won 40-16 after leading 12-9 at half-time.

The home side scored six tries thanks to Ox Nche, Junior Pokomela, William Small-Smith, Joseph Dweba, Jasper Wiese and Rhyno Smith.

Star flyhalf Ruan Pienaar landed four conversations, while replacement Tian Schoeman slotted the final conversion of the match.

Munster, who are three-time PRO14 champions, could only manage a try through Dan Goggin while Tyler Bleyendaal scored three penalties.

This win means that the Cheetahs have claimed their third successive victory and they have recorded their first win against Munster.

This was the coach Franco Smith's last match in charge before he departs to coach Italy's national team Hawies Fourie taking over after this weekend.

The Cheetahs will travel to Ireland for their next PRO14 encounter as they take on Connacht on Friday, October 25 (18:15 SA time).
