Sarel Pretorius, back from his stint with the Waratahs in Sydney, will be on the bench for the Free State Cheetahs on Saturday.

The Cheetahs face the Cardiff Blues in a pre-season friendly at Grey College in Bloemfontein.

Pretorius, who struggled to hold down a starting spot in a Waratahs team going from bad to worse in the latter stages of the season, will feature for the Cheetahs in the Currie Cup competition this season - before possibly returning for a second Super Rugby season with the Tahs.

Pretorius is not the only high-profile player back on the Cheetahs' roster.

Fullback Hennie Daniller makes his return to the starting line-up this weekend, after suffering a fractured hand back in May and sitting out the remainder of the Super Rugby season.

The Cheetahs team features a host of regular Super Rugby players - including 2009 Springbok tourist Davon Raubenheimer, who signed with the Cheetahs from Griquas this year.

Add in names like Robert Ebersohn, Barry Geel, , Riaan Smit, Piet van Zyl, Kabamba Floors, Izak van der Westuizen and captain Adriaan Strauss and the Blues will have their work cut out.

Free State Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Phillip Snyman, 13 Robert Ebersohn, 12 Barry Geel, 11 Cameron Jacobs, 10 Riaan Smit, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Davon Raubenheimer, 7 Lappies Labuschagne, 6 Kabamba Floors, 5 Izak van der Westuizen, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Marcel van der Merwe, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Trevor Nyakane.
Replacements: 16 Hercu Liebenberg, 17 Ross Geldenhuys, 18 Waltie Vermeulen, 19 Frans Viljoen, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Sias Ebersohn, 22 Andries Strauss.
