Bloemfontein - Cheetahs coach Franco Smith has named his team for Sunday’s PRO14 encounter against Irish side Munster.

Kick-off at the Free State Stadium is scheduled for 16:45.

Smith made a few tweaks to his line-up that beat the Cardiff Blues 21-10 in Bloemfontein last weekend.

Nico Lee is back in the starting XV at inside centre, with William Small-Smith moving to right wing and Rhyno Smith slotting in at fullback in place of Malcolm Jaer.

At No 8, Aidon Davis also replaces the injured Niell Jordaan, while flank Daniel Maartens is new to the bench.
