Cape Town - Springbok Sevens star Chris Dry will captain the Free State Cheetahs in their Currie Cup clash against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday.

It is a depleted Free State team as their first-choice players were picked for the PRO14 encounter against Irish side Ulster in Belfast on Friday night.

Dry takes the captain’s armband from Niell Jordaan, who is leading the Cheetahs in their PRO14 opener.

With Rory Duncan in charge of the PRO14 side, Daan Human has taken over as head coach of the Currie Cup side.
