Raymond Rhule Cheetahs Super Rugby

Back on the wing: Raymond Rhule

Cheetahs boss Naka Drotske has made two changes and a positional switch to his starting XV for Saturday's clash with the Stormers in Bloemfontein.

Amongst the backs, Raymond Rhule returns to the run-on side, on the right wing, at the expense of Cornal Hendricks, who drops down to the replacements bench.

Up front, Boom Prinsloo, who played on the blindside flank in last weekend's 19-8 defeat to the Sharks in Durban, swaps positions with Jean Cook. Prinsloo takes over from Cook at number eight, while Cook will wear the number seven jersey.

The final change is in the second row where Andries Ferreira comes in for Lodewyk de Jager, who broke a finger against the Sharks.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Raymond Rhule, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Ryno Benjamin, 11 Willie le Roux, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Boom Prinsloo, 7 Jean Cook, 6 Heinrich Brussow, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Maks van Dyk, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Caylib Oosthuizen.
