    Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named his team to tackle the Blues in a Super Rugby clash in Bloemfontein on Friday (19:10 kick-off).

    Drotske recalled Springbok wing Cornal Hendricks to the starting line-up after he had played off the bench in their 35-29 win over the Sharks in Durban.

    In the only other change to the starting line-up, Carl Wegner replaces Lood de Jager at lock after the Springbok was ruled out for two months with an elbow injury.

    Tienie Burger is promoted to the bench, while Johann Sadie also gets a spot among the substitutes following his return from Japan.

    Heinrich Brussow, who returned from Japan with concussion, is still sidelined this week.
