The first of the Saturday double header takes us to Bloemfontein, where the Cheetahs host their neighbours Griquas.

The Cheetahs have kept largely the same team, a shuffling around in the front row the only change. This will stand them in good stead to get their season back on track. They have lost two game in succession, and as a team favourite to take the top spot, they will have to start winning some matches.

Griquas have had a similar start to the season, winning their first round away match but since not quite getting it right. Both teams will throw everything into this match as a loss could put them well behind the rest of the pack.

Free State Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Riaan Smit, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Robert Ebersohn, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Lappies Labuschagne, 6 Boom Prinsloo (captain), 5 Lood de Jager, 4 Teboho Mohoje, 3 Rossouw de Klerk, 2 Hercu Liebenberg, 1 Trevor Nyakane

Substitutes: 16 Ethienne Reynecke, 16 Wian du Preez, 18 Waltie Vermeulen, 19 Davon Raubenheimer, 20 Kevin Luiters, 21 Willie du Plessis, 22 Piet Lindeque

Griquas: 15. PJ Vermeulen, 14. Nico Scheepers, 13. JP Nel, 12. Howard Mnisi, 11. Rocco Jansen, 10. Francois Brummer, 9. Marnus Hugo, 8. Leon Karemaker, 7. Burger Schoeman, 6. Carel Greeff, 5. Rory Arnold, 4. Hilton Lobberts, 3. Nick Schonert, 2. Ryno Barnes (capt), 1. Steph Roberts.
