The Cheetahs team to face the Kings in the second promotion/relegation match has been announced, with a few changes to the team that beat the Kings so comprehensively last Friday night.

In the backline, Rayno Benjamin and Philip Snyman come into the starting line-up from the bench, while Nico Scheepers drops to the bench and Andries Strauss missing out on facing his 2013 team again, being ruled out through injury. Sias Ebersohn has recovered to take his place in the team for the last time before making his move to the Western Force.

Amongst the forwards, Lappies Labuschagne misses out, as reported earlier in the week, with Davon Raubenheimer coming into the team and Hendrik Venter taking his spot on the bench. Hendro Scholtz will be playing in his last game after the Cheetahs called him from retirement to assist in their hour of loose forward need.

On the bench, the only other change is that of Barry Geel coming in as midfield backup.

Free State Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Rayno Benjamin, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Philip Snyman, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Phillip van der Walt, 7 Davon Raubenheimer, 6 Hendro Scholtz, 5 Izak van der Merwe, 4 Francois Uys, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Marcel van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Hercu Liebenberg, 17 Schalk van der Merwe, 18 Carl Wegner, 19 Hendrik Venter, 20 Tewis du Bruyn, 21 Barry Geel, 22 Nico Scheepers.
