SBW back to face Cheetahs
Hamilton - Sonny Bill Williams has returned
to the Chiefs starting line-up for their Super Rugby match against the Cheetahs
in Hamilton on Saturday.
Williams missed last week’s clash against the
Sharks in Durban after complaining of headaches.
The Chiefs made several changes to their
starting line-up including a new front row. Pauliasi Manu returns from injury
and is joined by Quentin MacDonald and Ben Tameifuna.
Tom Marshall comes onto the left wing, with
Williams returning to the midfield and Charlie Ngatai is bracketed with Seta
Tamanivalu at centre.
Andrew Horrell moves to the reserves and is
joined by prop Siate Tokolahi and Marty McKenzie.
Kick-off for Saturday’s clash is scheduled
for 05:30 (SA time).
