Raymond Rhule has replaced Rosko Specman on the right wing ahead of the Cheetahs’ Pro14 clash against Zebre in Parma on Saturday.
Specman has joined the Blitzboks in Stellenbosch, where they are preparing for the 2017-18 World Rugby Sevens Series.
This will be Rhule and Sergeal Petersen’s last appearance for the Cheetahs before they join the Stormers.
There are two changes to the pack, where Junior Pokomela will play blindside flank in the absence of Henco Venter and Ox Nche at loosehead, with Charles Marais rotating to the bench.
Among the reserves, loose forward Jasper Wiese takes Pokomela’s spot and the fit-again Fred Zeilinga has been selected to make his return via the bench.
Cheetahs – 15 Sergeal Petersen, 14 Raymond Rhule, 13 Francois Venter (c), 12 William Small-Smith, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Ernst Stapelberg, 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Oupa Mohoje, 7 Junior Pokomela, 6 Paul Schoeman, 5 Reniel Hugo, 4 Justin Basson, 3 Tom Botha, 2 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 1 Ox Nche.
Subs: 16 Jacques du Toit, 17 Charles Marais, 18 Johan Coetzee, 19 Rynier Bernardo, 20 Jasper Wiese, 21 Shaun Venter, 22 Fred Zeilinga, 23 Nico Lee.
