Piet van Zyl Cheetahs v Stormers 2012

Starting scrum-half: Piet van Zyl

There are two changes to the Cheetahs matchday 22 for Saturday's Super Rugby clash with the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld.

While the starting XV stays the same, loose forward Frans Viljoen returns from injury on the bench where Tewis de Bruyn also features in the place of injured scrum-half Sarel Pretorius.

Pretorius, who scored a try with his first touch of the ball against the Stormers, has been ruled out with the hamstring injury.

Piet van Zyl thus retains the number 9 jersey. Full-back Hennie Daniller has also recovered from the rib injury and will start.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Willie le Roux, 13 Johan Sadie, 12 Robert Ebersohn, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Burton Francis, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Pieter Labuschagne, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lodewyk De Jager, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Trevor Nyakane.
Replacements: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Coenie Oosthuizen, 18 Rynhard Landman, 19 Frans Viljoen, 20 Tewis de Bruyn, 21 Francois Brummer, 22 Ryno Benjamin.
