Cheetahs call on Bok sevens flyer

Springbok Sevens player Lionel Mapoe comes into the Free State Cheetahs side in one of two changes – both in the backline – for Saturday’s Currie Cup  match against Western Province in Bloemfontein.

Mapoe, who was on the bench last week after a long injury, replaces JW Jonker who moves to the bench, while Springbok Meyer Bosman’s broken hand has healed.

Bosman comes in for another Sevens Bok Phillip Snyman with Corne Uys moving to Snyman’s outside centre berth to make way for Bosman.

The pack that dominated the Lions last week is retained.

Kabamba Floors has an injury and Chris Dry is again the flank replacement.

Free State Cheetahs:

Hennie Daniller, Lionel Mapoe, Corne Uys, Meyer Bosman, Jongi Nokwe, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, JP Joubert, Ashley Johnson, Frans Viljoen, Johan Wessels, David de Villiers, Nico Breedt, WP Nel, Adriaan Strauss (capt.), Coenie Oosthuizen.

Replacements: Richardt Strauss, Wian du Preez, Izak van der Westhuizen, Chris Dry, Tertius Carse, Louis Strydom, JW Jonker.
