Cheetahs run-on team unchanged



Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has again left his run-on team unchanged for their Vodacom Super Rugby match against the Southern Kings in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

After beating the Sharks in Durban last week, the Cheetahs are lying second in the SA conference, and Drotske has made only two changes to the Cheetahs' bench.

Elgar Watts has been included among the replacements, while prop Trevor Nyakane (hip injury) passed a fitness test and could be utilised as an impact player.

Another huge plus for the Cheetahs is the return of star scrumhalf Sarel Pretorius, who has recovered from a hamstring injury to help bolster the replacement bench.

"Both Sarel and Elgar are attacking players that we can utilise in the second half against the Kings," Drotske said after naming his team on Wednesday.

"The Kings are a very good team that don't get the credit they deserve."

TOYOTA CHEETAHS: Hennie Daniller, Willie le Roux, Johann Sadie, Robert Ebersohn, Raymond Rhule, Burton Francis, Piet van Zyl, Phillip van der Walt, Lappies Labuschagne, Heinrich Brussow, Francois Uys, Lood de Jager, Lourens Adriaanse, Adriaan Strauss (captain), Coenie Oosthuizen.

Replacements: Ryno Barnes, Trevor Nyakane, Rynhard Landman, Frans Viljoen, Sarel Pretorius, Francois Brummer, Ryno Benjamin.
