BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa (AP) -- The Cheetahs withstood a furious fightback by the ACT Brumbies to triumph 27-21 in a scrappy Super Rugby encounter on Saturday.

The South African side began the game at the bottom of the standings and with a tendency to concede late points, but bucked that trend to hold off the Australian side and move up to 12th on the table.

With both teams scoring two tries, the Brumbies were left to lament three missed penalty attempts and one missed conversion in a game in which Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen enjoyed a flawless night from the tee, and landed a dropped goal from inside his own half.

Robbie Coleman and Stephen Moore crossed the whitewash for the visitors, but it was tries from Willie le Roux and Goosen in the space of four minutes that swung the game in favor of the Cheetahs shortly after halftime.
