Oupa on Cheetahs bench

The Free State Cheetahs have made a solitary change to their starting lineup for Friday’s Currie Cup clash against the Vodacom Blue Bulls at Loftus.

Springbok flank Oupa Mohoje, who failed to make the final 31-man Springbok World Cup squad, will be eased back into Currie Cup action as a replacement, while fellow Bok training squad member Cornal Hendricks was not considered for selection this week.

In the only change to the run-on XV from last weekend’s win over Western Province, hooker Elandré Huggett replaces Jacques du Toit, who moves down to the bench.

Free State Cheetahs – 15 Clayton Blommetjies, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 Francois Venter, 12 Rayno Benjamin, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Fred Zeilinga, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Niell Jordaan, 7 Henco Venter, 6 Gerhard Olivier, 5 Francois Uys (c), 4 Armandt Koster, 3 Luan de Bruin, 2 Elandré Huggett, 1 BG Uys.
Subs: 16 Jacques du Toit, 17 Caylib Oosthuizen, 18 Reniel Hugo, 19 Oupa Mohoje, 20 Freddy Ngoza, 21 Ruan van Rensburg, 22 Sias Ebersohn.
