Cheetahs make four changes for Hurricanes

Cheetahs centre Robert Ebersohn will make his Super14 debut against the Hurricanes in Bloemfontein on Saturday and is one of four changes for the team.

Twenty one year old Ebersohn was forced to withdraw from the Cheetahs squad that were beaten by the Highlandes last week but comes in to wear the number thirteen jersey.

Another change to the backline is that of Lionel Mapoe who moves back to the wing with Danwel Demas moving down to the bench.

Hennie Daniller who came on against the Highlanders last week resumes his place at full back in Riaan Viljoen’s place while Sarel Pretorius has been selected ahead of Tewis de Bruyn at scrum-half.

Walti Vermuelen is named a lock in place of David de Villiers.
