The Cheetahs have named two different teams for Friday's pre-season friendly against the Sharks in Umlazi.

Cheetahs coach Franco has divided his players into two groups, with the white group set to play a 60-minute warm-up against the Sharks.

This group includes the likes of Ox Nche, Francois Uys, Boom Prinsloo, Oupa Mohoje and Fred Zeilinga.

The orange group will play in the televised match which kicks off at 18:30. Because this game is being broadcast, Sanzaar rulings dictate that it has to be a full 80-minute contest.

Most of the Cheetahs' first-choice players feature in the orange group, but players from both sides will act as replacements during both matches.

Cheetahs (white group) – 15 Ryno Eksteen, 14 JP Smith, 13 Joubert Engelbrecht, 12 Ali Mgijima, 11 Ruan van Rensburg, 10 Fred Zeilinga, 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Junior Pokomela, 7 Oupa Mohoje, 6 Boom Prinsloo, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Dennis Visser, 2 Erich de Jager, 1 Ox Nche.
Subs: 16 Zee Mkhabela, 17 Reinach Venter.

Cheetahs (orange group) – 15 Claytpn Blommetjies, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 Nico Lee, 12 Clinton Swart, 11 Ryno Benjamin, 10 Niel Marais, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Niell Jordaan, 7 Uzair Cassiem, 6 Paul Schoeman, 5 Reniel Hugo, 4 Armandt Koster, 3 Johan Coetzee, 2 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 1 Charles Marais.
