Cheetahs too good for Rebels

The Melbourne Rebels are still searching for their first Super 15 win of the season after they were beaten 33-26 by the Cheetahs in a thriller at AAMI Park.

Inspired by star fly-half James O'Connor, the Rebels overturned a 10-point half-time deficit to open up a three-point lead with 15 minutes remaining and had all the momentum.

But Cheetahs fly-half Johan Goosen tied it up with a penalty goal, before reserve Piet van Zyl scored in the corner after the final siren to clinch the away win.
