Drotske opts for speed in Currie Cup play off quest

The experiment with Springbok flank Kabamba Floors on the wing is over and the Free State Cheetahs will chase an Absa Currie Cup semifinal spot with two of the fastest men in South African rugby when they play the Blue Bulls in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

JW Jonker, better known as a centre, has been selected in place of Floors who drops to the bench. On the other wing Jongi Nokwe comes in for Eddie Fredericks.

Flank Hendro Scholtz, who has led the team in a number of matches this season, is also relegated in a swap with Heinrich Brussow who starts after playing from the bench last week following injury.

At flyhalf Chris Rossouw returns in place of Tewis de Bruyns who moves back to scrumhalf.

Free State Cheetahs:

Bevin Fortuin; JW Jonker, Robert Ebersohn, Meyer Bosman, Jongi Nokwe; Chris Rossouw, Tewis de Bruyn; Duanne Vermeulen, Juan Smith (capt.), Heinrich Brussow, Barend Pieterse, David de Villiers, Kobus Calldo, Adriaan Strauss, Wian du Preez.

Replacements: Richardt Strauss, Shrek Oosthuizen, Nico Breedt, Hendro Scholtz, Jandré Blom, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Kabamba Floors.
