Cheetahs make three changes for Bulls

The Cheetahs have named their Super Rugby team to play the Bulls in Bloemfontein on Friday with Steven Sykes coming on to the replacements bench.

The match will be the Cheetahs second home match this season and they are one of four unbeaten teams remaining in Super Rugby this year.

Having beaten the Blues last weekend the Cheetahs have kept changes to a minium and Willie Britz’s hamstring injury has opened the door for Jean Cook to start at No.8.

Cook started in last week’s match against the Blues on the flank and his place is taken by Boom Prinsloo who has been promoted from the replacements bench.

The two changes are on the only changes to the starting line up that won last week.

On the replacements bench there is one change and Prinsloo’s promotion makes way way for former Southern King and Sharks forward Steven Sykes to come into the team.
