The Cheetahs have been forced into one change for their match against the Crusaders on Saturday. Ryno Benjamin will return to the starting line up for Philip Burger, who has a hamstring injury.

The Crusaders will be on an almighty high after their victory over the Stormers in Cape Town last weekend, but have been hampered with four injuries in their backline alone, with Israel Dagg, Sean Maitland and Adam Whitelock already back in New Zealand. This will be offset by the return of both Richie McCaw and Dan Carter to the starting line up.

Riaan Smit will switch to the right wing with Benjamin, who himself is returning from a hamstring injury, will play on the left wing. The game kicks off at 19h10 on Saturday evening.

Cheetahs: Riaan Viljoen, Riaan Smit, Robert Ebersohn, Corne Uys, Ryno Benjamin, Sias Ebersohn, Sarel Pretorius, Davon Raubenheimer, Ashley Johnson, Heinrich Brussow, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Francois Uys, WP Nel, Adriaan Strauss (capt), Coenie Oosthuizen.

Replacements: Ryno Barnes, Lourens Adriaanse, Waltie Vermeulen, Kabamba Floors, Tewis de Bruyn, Naas Olivier, Hennie Daniller

  • If I was Philip Burger I’d also fake an injury if I had to face a 50 pointer. ;-)

  • But the team sheet isn’t out yet..was more a case of asking :will those two play or one of them? Or will they be rested for another game -to ensure they don’t pick up any unnecessary injuries in a game the saders are most likely thinking they should get 5 ( but let’s not forget 2009 in bloem)..
    Would be nice to see richie and brussow go at it..

    I did a you were big mover …. will be interesting how our leader fares over the next few rounds with the Stormers on the road.

    Good luck on joining the ‘Top 10 Club’ :cool:
    Dagg and Maitland are both in my side as well thinking of trading them out, as reports look like they may not be back for over a month ! :shock:

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 15) : I don’t have that luxury :( Have one trade left and will keep it for a vital trade.

    Both of them will play in the final so dropping them now only to see them score a try a piece in the final will be heartbreak. :wink:

    Well last 6 is what I was meaning you look to have a very compact squad !

    Tahs and Bulls look like they will be very luck to make the last 6

    Saders, Reds, Stormers, Blues and two others from Sharks, Bulls, Tahs someone is going to miss out, most likely the BULLS

  • A Win/Win situation for me!

    If the Crusers win by a mile I`ll laugh at Naka, if FS get a remarkeble result I`ll ridicule the ” acclaimed Springbok Centre Combination” . . . :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
