Bloemfontein - Free State Cheetahs coach Daan Human has named his team for Friday’s Currie Cup game against the Pumas at the Free State Stadium.

The match will be a curtain-raiser for the PRO14 match between the Cheetahs and Ulster.

Human made a few changes to the team that lost 52-24 to Griquas in Kimberley last weekend.

Dennis Visser starts at No 4 lock, with Abongile Nonkontwana moving to No 6 flank.

Jannes Snyman replaces Nardus Erasmus at No 7, while Daniel Maartens starts at No 8.

Elandre Huggett returns from injury and starts at hooker in place of Reinach Venter, who moves to tighthead prop, while Stephan van Schalkwyk provides prop cover on the bench.

It will be Free State’s final Currie Cup game of the season.

They are still looking for their first win of the competition, having lost all five of their games.

Kick-off is at 17:00 on Friday.
