    Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named his team to tackle the Lions in a Super Rugby derby in Bloemfontein on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).

    Drotske made four changes to his starting line-up from the team that lost 45-24 at home to the Highlanders last weekend.

    Skipper Francois Uys, who was a late withdrawal before last week’s clash, is back in the starting team, with Steven Sykes dropping to the bench.

    Carel Greeff replaces Tienie Burger at flank, with the latter missing out due to concussion, and Henco Venter comes in on the bench.

    There are also two changes in the backline, with wings Cornal Hendricks and Raymond Rhule back in the starting team.

    Hendricks, the Springbok right wing, is back in place of Sergeal Petersen, while Rhule moves up from the bench in place of Rayno Benjamin.

    Kick-off for Saturday’s clash at Free State Stadium kicks off at 17:05.
