The Cheetahs are in uncharted territory which could see the former bottom feeders of Super Rugby top the SA conference with a victory over the Kings this weekend. With that in mind, coach Naka Drotske has gone for constancy in selection.
The only change comes on the bench where Sarel Pretorius comes in for Tewis de Bryun and Trevor Nyakane replaces Caylib Oosthuizen. Elgar Watts also replaces Francois Brummer.
The Cheetahs host the Kings in Bloemfontein on Saturday, KO 19:10 CAT (18:10 BST)
