Cheetahs name their team

Toyota Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named a strong line-up to face the Sharks in Saturday’s Super Rugby opener at Kings Park.

Francois Uys captains a side featuring Springboks in Wille le Roux, Oupa Mohoje, Coenie Oosthuizen and Lood de Jager in the starting lineup, with another test player, wing Cornal Hendricks, on the bench. New recruits Wille Britz (from the Lions) and Mike van der Spuy (from Western Province) have both cracked the nod, starting at number 8 and inside centre respectively.

The loss of key players from last year’s campaign is evident too – Torsten van Jaarsveld and former Sharks junior Danie Mienie will have big boots to fill – they replace Adriaan Strauss and Trevor Nyakane who will both feature in Bulls colours this season. Veteran Joe Pietersen has been picked to start at flyhalf, with last year’s regular pivot, Johan Goosen, now playing in France.

Maks van Dyk, Willie du Plessis and Tian Meyer, all of whom – like Mienie – played their junior rugby for the Sharks, have been included on the bench.

Cheetahs: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Clayton Blommetjies, 13 Francois Venter, 12 Michael van der Spuy, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Joe Petersen, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Willie Britz, 7 Oupa Mohoje, 6 Jean Cook, 5 Francois Uys (captain), 4 Lood de Jager, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 1 Danie Minnie.
Substitutes: 16 Stephan Coetzee, 17 BG Uys, 18 Maks van Dyk, 19 Carl Wegner, 20 Boom Prinsloo, 21 Tian Meyer, 22 Willie du Plessis, 23 Cornal Hendricks
