• Cheetahs stick with Bulls bashers

    The Cheetahs have made no changes to their team for the game against the Rebels in Melbourne on Friday.

    The Cheetahs are going into round three with one win and one loss, faltering to the Lions 21-20 in their opening game before last weekend’s 15-9 win over the Bulls, while the Rebels are yet to play their first Super Rugby game of the 2014 season.

    Even though the Rebels haven't kicked off their campaign, they are coming off of a successful pre-season, winning all three of their warm-up matches.

    Cheetahs – 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Phillip van der Walt, 7 Lappies Labuschagné, 6 Boom Prinsloo, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lodewyk de Jager, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Caylib Oosthuizen.
    Subs: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Maks van Dyk, 19 Rynard Landman, 20 Jean Cook, 21 Sarel Pretorius, 22 Elgar Watts, 23 Hennie Daniller.
