Cheetahs lose wing Benjamin for Waratahs

Cheetah’s leftwing Ryno Benjamin will miss his side’s Super Rugby clash against the Waratahs in Sydney, Australia on Saturday after being ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Fabiaan Juries will replace Benjamin while Frans Viljoen will take Juries’ place on the bench.

This means the Cheetahs will go into the match with five forwards and two backs on the bench.

The Cheetahs start their overseas tour without a win from four starts this season and will face the Waratahs, the Reds, the Blues and the Hurricanes over the next four weeks before returning to South Africa.


Coenie Oosthuizen, Ryno Barnes, WP Nel, Martin Muller, Wilhelm Steenkamp, Heinrich Brussow, Phillip van der Walt, Ashley Johnson, Tweis de Bruyn, Sias Ebersohn, Fabiaan Juries, Andries Strauss (capt), Robert Ebersohn, Phillip Snyman, Riann Viljoen.

Replacements: Skipper Badenhorst, Lourens Adriaanse, Frans Viljoen, Kabamba Floors, Francois Uys, Sarel Pretorius, Naas Olivier.
