The Cheetahs have made three changes to their bench for Saturday's match against the Bulls at Loftus on Saturday.
Coenie Oosthuizen, who has finally recovered from a neck injury, returns in the No 18 jersey in place of Rossouw de Klerk, while Ligtoring Landman, who was also injured, is picked after making a few Vodacom Cup appearances for Griquas.
The main news, however, is the return of Springbok flyhalf Johan Goosen to the bench. He has been out of action with concussion.
The starting XV remains unchanged from the one that beat the Stormers last weekend.
Cheetahs – 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Raymond Rhule, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Ryno Benjamin, 11 Willie le Roux, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Boom Prinsloo, 7 Jean Cook, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Maks van Dyk, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Caylib Oosthuizen.
Subs: 16 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Ligtoring Landman, 20 Teboho Mohoje, 21 Shaun Venter, 22 Johan Goosen, 23 Cornal Hendricks.
