Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has named Heinrich Brussow in his team to face the Highlanders at Rugby Park at Invercargill.

Brussow has been named on the bench for the first time this season and will most likely be eased back in during the second half.

Brussow's return is the only change to the team that lost to the Chiefs and he comes in to replace Johannes (Boom) Prinsloo on the replacements bench.

Former Springbok Brussow is returning from a shoulder operation after he was injured playing Currie Cup rugby last year.

Brussow has been plagued by injury in recent years and last year he also missed part of the season with a knee injury.
