The Cheetahs have been forced into changes ahead of their first of two promotion/relegation matches and all the changes are up front.

As reported, Coenie Oosthuizen has been ruled out yet again and is replaced by Ross Geldenhuys in the front row. Francois Uys replaces Carl Wegner in the second row, with the latter falling to the bench. Lappies Labuschagne, who returns from injury, takes Uys’ place on the side of the scrum.

After tinkering with the halfbacks for much of the Currie Cup, Sarel Pretorius and Sias Ebersohn has been given a few games to settle into a working combination, and will look to dominate the Kings’ combo of Oelschig and Dunlop.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Nico Scheepers, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Andries Strauss, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Phillip van der Walt, 7 Lappies Labuschange, 6 Hendro Scholtz, 5 Izak van der Merwe, 4 Francois Uys, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Adriaan Strauss (c), 1 Marcel van der Merwe

Reserves: 16 Hercu Liebenberg, 17 Schalk van der Merwe, 18 Carl Wegner, 19 Davon Ruabenheimer, 20 Tewis du Bruyn, 21 Phillip Snyman, 22 Rayno Benjamin.

  • @Die Kriek (Comment 4) : Not sure if it will work in the UK. A friend of mine tried it in S-Korea with my account, but apparently it doesn’t stream outside of Southern-Africa I think.

  • I know I will probably get crucified for this, but I actually hope the Kings win. Even if it is just for a change of scenery on the local rugby scene.

  • Aaaahhhhhh the Kings….the unofficial Chief Whip of South African rugby.

    If your union’s administration is amateur and/or performing below par, the Kings will come knocking at your door and you might just be getting your gravy train ticket punched.

    Go Kings, shake the amateur admins out of South African rugby – hopefully SARU is next in line.

  • @KingRiaan (Comment 6) : Funny enough, I’m curious to see what they will be able to do after a season of SR. Still dont like them, but hell, I never liked the Cheetahs either!

  • @Die Kriek (Comment 8) : The way they got their ticket into the SR is appalling, but if they manage to beat the Cheetahs and get promoted to the the CC, then that they would have earned. Being undefeated in a season is by no means an easy feat.

  • Never thought I’d see the day, some kind words about the Kings on Sharksworld and no Cheeky attack. Wow!!!

  • Thanx Ludz you just reminded me why I wanted to support the cheetahs in the promotion/relegation games.
