Following their shock loss to the Lions last weekend, coach Naka Drotske has refused to make any changes to the side. The Cheetahs looked the better side for most of the contest but were sloppy in their finishing – leaving a lot of points out on the field.
The biggest worry would have been star fly-half Johan Goosen, who went off with an arm injury. But news is that he has recovered sufficiently and will start for the Bloem boys against the Bulls this weekend.
Cheetahs – 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Lappies Labuschagne, 6 Boom Prinsloo, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lood de Jager, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Caylib Oosthuizen.
Subs: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Maks van Dyk, 19 Rynhardt Landman, 20 Jean Cook, 21 Sarel Pretorius, 22 Elgar Watts, 23 Hennie Daniller.
