    Cape Town - Springbok prop Trevor Nyakane will get his first Super Rugby start of the season when they tackle the Chiefs in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

    Nyakane starts in the No 1 jersey with Caylib Oosthuizen moving to the bench after starting in their last match against the Blues in Auckland.

    Coenie Oosthuizen remains sidelined with a neck issue.

    Lappies Labuschangé is back in the starting line-up after seeing just 35 minutes in Auckland, while Jean Cook also moves back into the run-on side at No 8, following the withdrawal of Phillip van der Walt due to a broken hand.

    Van der Walt will be out for eight weeks.

    Kick-off for Saturday's match at the Free State Stadium is scheduled for 15:00.
