Cheetahs make big changes for Province match (team sheet)

Cheetahs’ coach Naka Drotske has made 4 changes and a positional switch to the team that got smashed by the Sharks last weekend.

After such a good year for the franchise, what happened last weekend was nothing short of humiliating. It seems the coaching staff want to send a message to those who performed poorly, by dropping them for such a big match.

Changes include:

  • Wing Raymond Rhule, loose forward Davon Raubenheimer, lock Waltie Vermeulen and prop Rossouw de Klerk are all dropped
  • Rhule and Raubenheimer drop out of the matchday 22 completely
  • Wing Piet Lindeque, loose forward Oupa Mohoje, lock Freddie Ngoza and prop Schalk van der Merwe are all promoted to the starting 15
  • And Oupa Mohoje shifts from lock to blindside flank

Free State Cheetahs – 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Riaan Smit, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Robert Ebersohn, 11 Piet Lindeque, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Boom Prinsloo, 7 Oupa Mohoje, 6 Lappies Labuschagné, 5 Lood de Jager, 4 Freddie Ngoza, 3 Trevor Nyakane, 2 Hercu Liebenberg, 1 Schalk van der Merwe.
Subs: 16 AJ le Roux, 17 Rossouw de Klerk, 18 Francois Uys, 19 Davon Raubenheimer, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Rayno Benjamin, 22 Willie du Plessis.
