Johannesburg - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské has made two changes to the team that will clash with the Melbourne Rebels on Saturday.
The Bloemfontein team will be without Springbok flanker Heinrich Brüssow after he pulled his hamstring in the match against the Crusaders last Saturday.
He will be replaced by Kabamba Floors.
Corne Uys returns to the starting XV replacing Barry Geel who played a pivotal role in the ousting of the Crusaders.
Drotské made two more changes to his bench with Martin Muller coming in for Waltie Vermeulen as replacement lock.
