Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Franco Smith has named his team for Friday’s Currie Cup Premier Division clash against Western Province at Newlands.

Smith made a few changes to the team that beat the Blue Bulls 43-20 in Bloemfontein last week.

Scrumhalf Tian Meyer has been named captain for the match after the withdrawal of regular skipper Francois Venter due to injury.

Nico Lee takes Venter’s spot in midfield, while up front the coach has opted for a new front row.

Charles Marais, Jacques du Toit and Johan Coetzee switch places with Ox Nche, Torsten van Jaarsveld and Tom Botha in the starting line-up
