Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named his side to face the Stormers in a pre-Super Rugby warm-up match on Saturday.
The backline is unchanged from the unit that stuttered to a scrappy win over the Kings last weekend, with teenage sensation Johan Goosen retained at flyhalf ahead of Sias Ebersohn.
In the pack, though, a number of changes have been made, with Davon Raubenheimer switching to number 8 to replace Ash Johnson, who drops to the bench. Hein Brussow continues at open side with Philip van der Walt moving into the number 7 jersey. At lock , Andries Ferreira comes into the number 4 jersey to stake his claim for Super Rugby selection, while WP Nel is again fit and takes over from Trevor Nyakane at tight head prop.
The side is again led by hooker Adriaan Strauss, with cousin Andries retained in the number 12 jersey.
