    Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské has named his team to tackle the Sharks in a Super Rugby clash in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

    Seven Cheetahs players (Willie le Roux, Cornal Hendricks, Lood de Jager, Coenie Oosthuizen, Adriaan Strauss, Teboho Mohoje and Trevor Nyakane) were part of the Springboks' 23-man squad for the Test against Scotland in Port Elizabeth last weekend, and the coach did not hesitate to include them all in his starting team.

    Another Springbok, flyhalf Johan Goosen, is also included after missing the last few Bok Tests with a knee injury.

    No 8 Philip van der Walt has recovered from a hand injury and returns to the starting team, while and Jean Cook will feature off the bench after recovering from a shoulder injury.

    A notable absentee is flank Heinrich Brüssow, who is sidelined with a groin injury.

    Saturday's match at the Free State Stadium is scheduled to start at 19:10.
