Le Roux to start against Bulls

The Cheetahs have made three changes to their starting XV for their match against the Vodacom Bulls on Saturday.

Fullback Willie le Roux will make his final appearance for the Cheetahs at Loftus, with Coenie van Wyk dropping to the bench. Clayton Blommetjies replaces Cornal Hendricks, but the former will play on the right wing, with Sergeal Petersen shifting to the left.

In the pack, Henco Venter will start at openside flank, replacing Tienie Burger, who drops out of the match-day squad. Bok flank Oupa Mohoje takes the vacant spot among the reserves. And in the only other change among the substitutes, Renier Botha comes in for Shaun Venter.
