    Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named his team for their Super Rugby clash against the Sharks in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

    Heinrich Brussow has been named on the bench after missing the start of the season due to concussion. The Springbok flank is expected to be given 30-40 minutes in the second half on Saturday.

    Drotske made a few changes and positional shifts from the team that went down 39-20 at home to the Bulls last weekend.

    Johann Sadie starts at outside centre, with Francois Venter moving into the No 12 slot, with Michael van der Spuy dropping out.

    Sarel Pretorius is also back at scrumhalf after missing the Bulls game with a hamstring injury. Tian Meyer subsequently moves down to the bench.

    Up front, Boom Prinsloo moves from flank to No 8 and Jean Cook back to flank, while Tienie Burger starts in the No 6 jersey, with Oupa Mohoje dropping out.

    Saturday's clash at the Free State Stadium kicks off at 17:05.
