Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named his team for their Super Rugby clash against the Sharks in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

Johann Sadie starts at outside centre, with Francois Venter moving into the No 12 slot, with Michael van der Spuy dropping out.
Sarel Pretorius is also back at scrumhalf after missing the Bulls game with a hamstring injury. Tian Meyer subsequently moves down to the bench.
