Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Rory Duncan has announced his team for Saturday’s PRO14 encounter against the Southern Kings in Bloemfontein (17:00 kick-off).

Duncan has made a few changes from the team that beat the Kings 45-21 in Port Elizabeth last weekend.

Flank Oupa Mohoje takes over the captaincy from Torsten van Jaarsveld who is sidelined with a minor injury, with Jacques du Toit starting at hooker in place of Van Jaarsveld.

Henco Venter also starts in the loose trio, replacing Paul Schoeman in the No 6 jersey.

On the bench, hooker Joseph Dweba and flyhalf/centre Clinton Swart will make their PRO14 debuts if called upon.

Regular captain Francois Venter is still sidelined with a neck injury which sees Nico Lee retain his place at outside centre.
