The battle of the house cats is our second match of the weekend, as the Cheetahs host the Lions in Bloemfontein, the Lions coming off a good win over the Bulls last weekend, to sit pretty at the top of the log.

The Cheetahs have dropped Sias, starting with scrumhalf Tewis de Bruyn instead, with Nico Scheepers having to do the goal kicking. We also see a return to action for Hendro Scholtz, who will face off with one of the better eigthmen in the Currie Cup this season, Warren Whiteley.

The Lions have made no changes to their team, allowing Jaco Taute another performance off the bench to get match fit, before throwing him into the deep-end. All the rumours surrounding Elton Jantjies will be firmly left at home as he continues to push his team to the defence of the Currie Cup crown.

Free Sate Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Nico Scheepers, 13 Robert Ebersohn (Captain), 12 Andries Strauss, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Tewis du Bruyn, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Hendro Scholtz, 7 Lappies Labuschagne, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Izak van der Westhuizen (Vice Captain), 4 Francois Uys, 3 Marcel van der Merwe, 2 Hercu Liebenberg, 1 Schalk van der Merwe.

Replacements: 16 Elandré Huggett, 17 Ross Geldenhuys, 18 Carl Wegner, 19 Davon Raubenheimer, 20 Sias Ebersohn, 21 Phillip Snyman, 22 Rayno Benjamin.

Golden Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Willie Britz, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco Van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg (captain).

Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Ruan Dreyer, 18 Etienne Oosthuizen, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Butch James, 22 Jaco Taute.
