    2013-04-10 17:12
    Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské has named an unchanged starting XV ahead of their Super Rugby clash against the Bulls in Pretoria on Saturday.

    The coach though made two changes to his bench from the 22-man squad which beat the Stormers 26-24.

    Loose forward Frans Viljoen returns from injury and will play off the bench, replacing Boom Prinsloo, while Tewis de Bruyn replaces the injured Sarel Pretorius.

    Pretorius was forced out with a hamstring injury he suffered after coming on as a second-half replacement against the Stormers.

    Fullback Hennie Daniller has recovered from the rib injury sustained against the Capetonians and will take his place in an unchanged run-on side.

    The men from Bloemfontein have won a franchise record five consecutive matches and are looking for their first ever Super Rugby win against the Bulls.

    The clash at Loftus Versfeld kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday.
