Brummer at flyhalf for Cheetahs
Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named his team to tackle the Highlanders in a Super Rugby clash in Bloemfontein on Saturday (19:10 kick-off).
Regular halfback partners - Sarel Pretorius and Joe Pietersen - are both sidelined with shoulder injuries which sees Tian Meyer and Francois Brummer coming in at scrumhalf and flyhalf respectively.
In the only other change to the starting team that beat the Stormers 25-17 on May 2, Danie Minnie comes in at loosehead prop, replacing Caylib Oosthuizen.
Springbok wing Raymond Rhule is also back after an injury layoff, but will start off the bench, while Shaun Venter will be the reserve scrumhalf.
