    Coenie big boost - Kleynhans

    2012-03-09 08:09
    Cape Town - Former Cheetahs coach Peet Kleynhans says Bok prop Coenie Oosthuizen's mere presence will be a big boost for the Cheetahs in their Super Rugby clash against the Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday.

    Oosthuizen will play his first match this year after injuring his neck at the end of last year's Currie Cup.

    "Coenie is a player that gets things going for a team.

    "It may be his first match after his injury ... But I think his and Ashley's (Johnson, eightman) inclusion in the starting team could make a difference.

    "If Ashley's on song he can make things happen," Kleynhans told the Volksblad newspaper.

    The 22-year-old Oosthuizen is one of four changes to the Cheetahs' starting line-up for their first overseas clash. He replaces Trevor Nyakane in the front row and Johnson is in for Davon Raubenheimer.

    In other changes George Earle comes in at lock for Andries Ferreira and Cameron Jacobs replaces Rocco Jansen at wing.

    But all eyes will be on Oosthuizen to spark the Cheetahs' pack into action after some lacklustre efforts at times in their last two games.

    Teams:

    Brumbies:
    15 Jesse Mogg, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Andrew Smith, 12 Christian Lealiifano, 11 Pat McCabe, 10 Matt Toomua, 9 Nic White, 8 Ben Mowen, 7 Ita Vaea, 6 Peter Kimlin, 5 Ben Hand, 4 Sam Carter, 3 Dan Palmer, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Ben Alexander

    Substitutes: 16 Anthony Hegarty, 17 Ruaidhri Murphy, 18 Scott Fardy, 19 Michael Hooper, 20 Ian Prior, 21 Zack Holmes, 22 Joseph Toman

    Cheetahs:

    15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Cameron Jacobs, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Philip Snyman, 11 Willie le Roux, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Tewis de Bruyn, 8 Ashley Johnson, 7 Philip van der Walt, 6 Heinrich Brussow, 5 Izak van der Westhuizen, 4 George Earl, 3 WP Nel, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Coenie Oosthuizen

    Substitutes: 16 Trevor Nyakane, 17 Hercu Liebenberg, 18 Davon Raubenheimer, 19 Justin Downey, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Sias Ebersohn, 22 Rayno Benjamin
