Bloemfontein - The Free State Cheetahs have announced their side for Friday's Currie Cup clash against the Pumas in Bloemfontein.

It is a massive day of rugby for the region, with the Cheetahs on PRO14 duty at the same venue against Leinster later in the day. 

Since the beginning of the PRO14, the Cheetahs' Currie Cup side has lost back-to-back games and they will be desperate to end that streak on Friday. 

Coach Daan Human has handed a Currie Cup debut to Vuyani Maqina while Jeremy Jordaan will also be playing his first Currie Cup match when he gets called onto the field from the bench.

Clayton Blommetjies, meanwhile, will start at fullback as Chris Dry captains. 

The referee will be Jaco Peyper.

The Currie Cup match kicks off at 17:30 and the PRO14 match kicks off at 20:00.
