Springbok tourist Raymond Rhule has been axed from the Cheetahs team to play the Southern Kings in a Super Rugby match in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Rhule, who travelled with the Boks on their 2012 year-end tour and was named in the Bok training squad on Wednesday, will sit on the bench for this Round 15 encounter.

Sevens Bok Rayno Benjamin will start on the right wing, while Willie le Roux shifts over to the left in the only changes to the side that beat the Reds last week.

Coach Naka Drotske left his unchanged after they dominated the Reds last weekend in set-pieces.

"I think we have done really well the last couple of weeks in the scrums and line-outs," said Cheetahs captain Adriaan Strauss.

"The guys have worked really hard and much of the credit must go to Os du Randt for his efforts with the forwards.

"We will have to take the Kings on up front and are looking forward to the challenge."

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Rayno Benjamin, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Robert Ebersohn, 11 Willie le Roux, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Pieter Labuschagné, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Francois Uys, 4 Lodewyk de Jager, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Coenie Oosthuizen.
Replacements: 16 Ryno Barnes, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Rynhard Landman, 19 Johannes Prinsloo, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Riaan Smit, 22 Raymond Rhule.
