Van Der Linde named in Cheetahs tour squad

World Cup Springbok prop CJ van der Linde has been included in the Cheetahs squad of 26 who left for Australasia on Sunday.

Van der Linde, who has been rested to recover from a calf injury, and fellow-Springbok Barend Pieterse who injured chest, will undoubtedly provide some experience and also power to a young Cheetahs side.

The Cheetahs play the Chiefs in Hamilton on Saturday.


On March 15 they play Crusaders, before they return via Australia where they play the Brumbies (March 21) and the Waratahs (March 28).


The Cheetahs, winless after three outings, lost their first two games by a single point.


Their nine tries are also the most by a South African franchise after three matches.

The Cheetahs squad is:


Hennie Daniller, Eddie Fredericks, Gavin Passens, Herkie Kruger of Jongi Nokwe, JW Jonker, Meyer Bosman, Hendrik Meyer, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Conrad Barnard, Falie Oelschig en Tewis de Bruyn.


Duanne Vermeulen, Darron Nell, Juan Smith (capt.), Heinrich Brussow, Kabamba Floors, Barend Pieterse, Rory Duncan, David de Villiers, Flip van der Merwe, Wian du Preez, Ronnie Uys, CJ van der Linde, Kobus Calldo, Adriaan Strauss en Richardt Strauss.
