Cape Town – Cheetahs coach Franco Smith has named his team to tackle Western Province in a Currie Cup clash in Bloemfontein on Friday.
Smith has made one change to his starting team from the one which beat Griquas 31-9 in Kimberley last weekend.
BG Uys starts at loosehead prop, while Caylib Oosthuizen moves to the bench in place of Maks van Dyk, who has been released to play for the Barbarians against Samoa in London.
Tertius Kruger also comes in on the bench, with Tienie Burger missing out.
The Cheetahs will be looking to regain revenge on WP, having narrowly lost 9-3 at a rain-soaked Newlands two weeks ago.
Friday’s clash at the Free State Stadium kicks off at 19:10.
