Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské has challenged three of his locks to make every second count in their pre-season clash against the Stormers in order to make the No 4 jersey their own.

Drotské was referring to Andries Ferreira, Francois Uys en George Earl as they prepare for the clash at Newlands.

Ferreira has been included in the central franchise's run-on XV to face the Stormers, but Drotské told Volksblad any one of the three mentioned could still make the position their own.

Philip van der Walt also gets a chance as flank, with Springbok Ashley Johnson a substitute.

Another Springbok, Davon Raubenheimer will wear the No 8 jersey.

Tighthead prop WP Nel is back after a shoulder operation. He couldn't play in last week's match against the Southern Kings.
