Cheetahs lose Schoeman

The Toyota Cheetahs have been hit by an injury blow ahead of their Vodacom Super Rugby match against the Blues, prompting two changes to the side that lost to the Highlanders in Bloemfontein last week.

Impressive loose forward Paul Schoeman has been ruled out of the match with an injury, meaning Niell Jordaan will take over the openside role for the match.

At the front, Charles Marais returns to the front row in the place of Ox Nche, who drops to the bench for the match.

The Eden Park match is the first tour outing for the Cheetahs and will see them look to overcome their last minute loss last weekend. The Blues, however, have been building nicely with some good victories over Australian sides in the last few weeks.

Toyota Cheetahs: Clayton Blommetjies, Sergeal Petersen, Francois Venter (capt), William Small-Smith, Raymond Rhule, Fred Zeilinga, Tian Meyer, Henco Venter, Oupa Mohoje, Niell Jordaan, Francois Uys, Carl Wegner, Tom Botha, Torsten van Jaarsveld, Charles Marais.

Reserves: Elandre Huggett, Ox Nche, Johan Coetzee, Armandt Koster, Uzair Cassiem, Shaun Venter, Niel Marais, Clinton Swart.
