Cheetahs coach naka Drotske has had to change his team to take on the Sharks in Bloemfontein this weekend as a result of an injury to Philip van der Walt, who has not recovered from a knock he took against the Bulls last weekend.
Boom Prinsloo has been selected on the flank, and Johan Wessels comes onto the bench in Boom’s place to cover the loosies. Boom has been an influential player so far this Currie Cup, and is currently tied for second in the leading try scorers stakes.

Substitutes: 16 Hercu Liebenberg, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 19 Johan Wessels, 20 Tewis de Bruyn, 21 Sias Ebersohn, 22 Philip Burger.Tweet
