Goosen back for Cheetahs against Griquas

The Cheetahs have named their team to face the Griquas in Kimberley this Saturday, with the welcome news that flyhalf Johan Goosen has recovered from his lengthy injury and moves straight into the starting line-up.


Goosen pairs up with Sarel Pretorius at scrumhalf, as Sias Ebersohn is dropped to the bench.


Andries Strauss sits out for another week after the Cheetahs opted to drop him as a result of ill-discipline, as he has received three yellow cards this season.


Tewis de Bruyn finds himself on the wood, in place of Piet van Zyl.
