Cheetahs make two changes

Rudolph Jacobs

Cheetahs head Rory Duncan coach has named two changes to his starting line-up for their Absa Currie fixture clash against the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth this weekend.


Raymond Rhule is back on the left wing, replacing JP du Plessis who moves to right wing, Clayton Blommetjies is back at fullback, replacing Rayno Benjamin who is out due to a hamstring injury, while Brendon Groenewald replaces Werner Lourens on the bench.

The Cheetahs are coming off a confident 30-30 draw against the Sharks in Bloemfontein last weekend, while the Kings lost their sixth straight game by going down 28-13 to the Blue Bulls last weekend at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in PE.

Free State Cheetahs: Clayton Blommetjies, JP du Plessis, Francois Venter, Joubert Engelbrecht, Raymond Rhule; Willie du Plessis, Sarel Pretorius; Lappies Labuschagne, Neil Claassen, Tienie Burger, Francois Uys, Henco Venter; George Marich, Torsten van Jaarsveld (capt), Caylib Oosthuizen. Bench: AJ le Roux, Dolph Botha, Brendon Groenewald, Vincent Jobo, Shaun Venter, Pieter-Steyn de Wet, AJ Coertzen
