Johannesburg - The Free State Cheetahs made two changes from their team that thrashed the Sharks ahead of their Currie Cup clash against Western Province at Newlands this coming Saturday.

Rayno Benjamin comes in for Riaan Smit on the right wing, while Francois Uys drops to the bench with Wilhelm Steenkamp getting a start at lock.

The Cheetahs are currently fourth on the Currie Cup log with 30 points, two behind the second-placed WP and 12 behind log-leaders, the Golden Lions.

      If I was a millionaire I would sponsor them - just get them to keep some of the players that come through from school and the structures.

      Nowadays with a million you cannot even wipe your arse! Jacob Zuma needs 2.5 million and he has 'only' 8 wives and 1 fiancé. I myself, if I won the Lotto, would buy a bakkie load of papsakke and then I would buy myself the Blue Bulls. Yes, OK, I'm a WP supporter but when I get drunk I buy all sorts of crap! To be serious, this game is going to be one that I will not miss for anything. Cheetahs, I wish you luck but my money is on WP. Like the atheist said to the christian congregation on their way to church to pray for rain: "You can try, but the wind blows West!" He knew that in that part of the world it did not rain when the wind blew West.
