The Cheetahs have kept their faith in the same team that did duty in Durban during their 25-20 victory over the Sharks.

The experiment to play talented Lionel Mapoe at centre will continue as the Cheetahs host the Highlanders in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

The Highlanders were narrowly beaten 15-19 by the Blues and have a very large pack who will offer a big challenge to the young Cheetahs front row who continue to impress after holding their ground against the Springbok-layden Sharks front row.

Cheetahs: 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Danwel Demas, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Meyer Bosman, 11 Jongi Nokwe, 10 Naas Olivier, 9 Tewis de Bruyn, 8 Frans Viljoen, 7 Juan Smith (captain), 6 Heinrich Brussow, 5 David de Villiers, 4 Nico Breedt, 3 WP Nel, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Wian du Preez.
Replacements: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Coenie Oosthuizen, 18 Waltie Vermeulen, 19 Ashley Johnson, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Sias Ebersohn, 22 Hennie Daniller.

Date: Saturday, February 27
Venue: Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria
Kick-off: 19.10 (17.10 GMT)
Referee: Stuart Dickinson (Australia)
Assistant referees: Stuart Berry (South Africa), Andrew Lees (Australia)
TMO: Shaun Veldsman (South Africa)
