Cheetahs captain Francois Venter has made a successful return from injury to lead the side in their upcoming Pro14 tour.
Venter was a concern for the tour after suffering a neck injury in the team’s loss to Treviso in early January.
Fullback Craig Barry has also been named in the squad after again being loaned out by Western Province.
