Cheetah changes galore

Several key men in Naka Drotske’s team have paid the price for the unconvincing win over Griquas in the opening round. The Cheetahs coach has named his side for the second-round clash against the Lions.

Inside centre Meyer Bosman is over his injury and comes straight into the number 12 jersey, replacing Namibian Hendrik Meyer. Also gone is flyhalf Jacques-Louis Potgieter, replaced in the run-on team by Chris Rossouw. Neither Potgieter nor Meyer makes the 22 at all this week, with the exciting young Rob Ebersohn named on the bench for the first time. Gavin Passens is in for Jongi Nokwe in the only other change to the backline. Sevens star Fabian Juries comes onto the bench in the place of Hennie Daniller and will look to provide an unpredictable aspect later in the game.

Kobus Calldo is again named at tighthead – last week he was down to start, but was replaced by Drew van Coller at the last minute. Young former-wrestler Philip Lemmer is named on the bench; Ronnie Uys is the man who loses out in an other-wise unchanged forward division. Former Lion Schalk van der Merwe will hope to build on a solid performance at the back of the scrum in Kimberley.

Cheetahs Team: Bevin Fortuin; Eddie Fredericks, JW Jonker, Meyer Bosman, Gavin Passens; Chris Rossouw, Neil Powell; Bioplus van der Merwe, Hendro Scholtz (capt), Heinrich Brussow, Barend Pieterse, Flip van der Merwe, Kobus Calldo, Adriaan Strauss, Wiaan du Preez. Reserwes: Jaco du Toit, Phillip Lemmer, David de Villiers, Kabamba Floors, Jandré Blom, Robert Ebersohn, Fabian Juries.

  • Something fishy here… I don’t undertand how Passesn can be at left wing for the Cheetahs this week when he played for Griquas last week…

    Just maybe this team announcement is wrong.

  • The Bioplus gave it away, Andre likes to use the nicknames of players

  • I see Giscard Pieters will be starting for the Griffons, wonder why as he played for the Cheetahs in the Vodacom Cup.
