Cheetahs boss Naka Drotske has recalled Ryno Benjamin to his starting XV for Saturday's clash with the Kings in Port Elizabeth.

Benjamin's inclusion is the only change to the Bloemfontein-based outfit's run-on side that beat the Reds last weekend.

The former Blitzbokke stalwart will start on the right wing which means that Raymond Rhule shifts to the bench and Willie le Roux moves to the left wing.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Ryno Benjamin, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Robert Ebersohn, 11 Willie le Roux, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Lappies Labuschagne, 6 Heinrich Brussow, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lood de Jager, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Coenie Oosthuizen.
Replacements: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Ligtoring Landman, 19 Boom Prinsloo, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Riaan Smit, 22 Raymond Rhule.
