The Cheetahs team named to face the Hurricanes this weekend features three changes to the unit that went down in Brisbane in round 4.
The starting pack remains intact, meaning a second Super Rugby start for Maks van Dyk at tighthead prop, but it’s at the back where things change rather drastically.
Rayno Benjamin pays the price for some sloppy defensive work against the Reds by dropping out of the match 22; his spot at right wing goes to Cornall Hendricks, while Willie le Roux shifts from left wing to fullback, displacing Hennie Daniller to the bench. Raymond Rhule, who has recovered from the ankle injury picked up against the Rebels, comes back into the number 11 jersey.
The final change sees Sarel Pretorius start at scrumhalf ahead of the benched Shaun Venter.
