Joseph Dweba will start at hooker in one of four changes to the Cheetahs team to face the Ospreys in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
There are three changes to the pack as Dweba, who was on the bench for the loss against the Glasgow Warriors, rotates with Marnus van der Merwe.
Luan de Bruin and Aranos Coetzee switch places, with De Bruin starting at tighthead prop, while Gerhard Olivier replaces Daniel Maartens in the loose trio.
In the only change to the backline, Shaun Venter starts at scrumhalf and will captain the team, with Tian Meyer out of the match-day squad. Rudy Paige will provide backup on the bench.
