Bloemfontein - Free State Cheetahs coach Rory Duncan has named his team to tackle the Sharks in a Currie Cup clash in Durban on Saturday (19:10 kick-off).

Willie du Plessis starts at flyhalf in place of Elgar Watts in one of a few changes made to the team which beat Griquas 34-27 in Bloemfontein last week.

Clayton Blommetjies comes in at fullback for AJ Coertzen, while up front Neil Claassen (flank) and Dolph Botha (prop) replace Boom Prinsloo and Luan de Bruin respectively.
