Brüssow: Starts on the flank

Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has made two changes to his starting XV for Saturday's clash with the Western Force in Perth.

Among the forwards, Springbok openside flanker Heinrich Brüssow starts in the number six jersey as a replacement for Frans Viljoen, who is sidelined after sustaining a calf muscle injury in last weekend's 27-26 victory over the Waratahs in Sydney.

And in the backs, Riaan Smit comes in at fly-half for Johan Goosen who tore the cruciate ligaments in his right knee in training earlier this week.

Brussouw and Smit's places on the replacements bench will be taken by Boom Prinsloo and Burton Francis respectively.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Willie le Roux, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Robert Ebersohn, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Riaan Smit, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Pieter Labuschagne, 6 Heinrich Brussow, 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 Ligtoring Landman, 19 Boom Prinsloo, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Ryno Benjamin.
