Cheetahs head coach Naka Drotské has kept the faith with the squad that beat the Bulls ahead of Friday's clash with the Rebels at AAMI Stadium.

The Cheetahs made history last Friday when they recorded their first-ever Super Rugby victory over the Bulls, winning 15-9 in a try-less home game.

It therefore comes as no surprise that Drotské has stuck with that winning formula for their third game, at the Rebels, who make their 2014 bow.

Cheetahs: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Shaun Venter 8 Phillip van der Walt, 7 Lappies Labuschagné, 6 Boom Prinsloo, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lodewyk de Jager, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Caylib Oosthuizen.
