Heinrich Brussow cheetahs chiefs 2012

Back in business: Heinrich Brüssow

Springbok flank Heinrich Brüssow will make his long-awaited return to the Cheetahs team from the bench against the Highlanders on Saturday.

Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské has ressisted the temptation to throw Brüssow straight into the mix as he makes just one change to his matchday 22.

Brüssow takes over from Johannes Prinsloo amongst the replacements while the starting XV that was hammered by the Chiefs last week remains unchanged.

Brüssow is expected to play about 30-odd minutes in the second half as he returns from surgery to his shoulder in October.

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

Date: Saturday, March 9
Venue: Rugby Park, Invercargill
Kick-off: 19.35 (08.35 SA time; 06.35 GMT)
Referee: Nick Briant (New Zealand)
