Stadning up for the Ulstermen is a term renowned with the home side, but the South African visitors received a warm welcome - Ulster fans giving them a standing ovation before and after the game.

Niall Jordaan, the Cheetahs captain, described the Kingspan Stadium as the number one “electrifying atmosphere” that they were coming to - and it lived up to its billing.
