Cheetahs name strongest fifteen

The Cheetahs have named a team mixed with youth and experience for their clash with the Lions this weekend.

Boom Prinsloo has been named captain of the team, leading from within a loose trio that has plenty of experience, maybe even the best loose trio in the competition, with Lappies Labuschagne and Philip van der Walt also starting. The second row is also an experienced combination of Lood de Jager and Waltie Vermeulen, while the front row has the least experience, with Durban boy John-Roy Jenkinson making his Currie Cup debut alongside Hercu Liebenberg and Caylib Oosthuizen.

The backline sees an impressive resemblance to what we saw from the Cheetahs Super Rugby side, with only Willie le Roux missing from the backline. Sarel Pretorius and Elgar Watts make up the halfbacks while the centre combination of Ebersohn and Sadie are due to run amok. Rhule, Smit and Daniller make an experienced back three, completing a team that is very close to the strongest of the Currie Cup teams in this competition.

The bench boasts some experience in prop Wian du Preez and flank Davon Raubenheimer, while Piet van Zyl is likely to make an impact off the bench. Piet Lindeque, who made his Super Rugby debut for the Sharks this season, is set to be involved in midfield or on the wing in the latter part of the match.

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 (Capt), 5. Waltie Vermeulen, 4. Lodewyk de Jager, 3. John-Roy Jenkinson, 2. Hercu Liebenberg, 1. Caylib Oosthuizen.

Substitutes: 16. Ethienne Reynecke, 17. Wian du Preez, 18. Teboho Mohoje, 19. Davon Raubenheimer, 20. Piet van Zyl, 21. Joubert Engelbrecht, 22. Piet Lindeque
