    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.

    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.
