Griquas have made three changes to their pack for the Currie Cup clash with the Free State Cheetahs in Kimberley on Saturday.

Falcons tighthead prop Nico Pretorius is on loan and will make his debut for Griquas in place of Ewald van der Westhuizen in the front row.

Lock Dalton Davis also comes into the starting line-up, with Australian Rory Arnold dropping to the bench in a tactical switch.

With flank Burger Schoeman ruled out for two weeks with a concussion RJ Liebenberg gets an opportunity to pack down on the side of the scrum whilst the backline that played against the Blue Bulls last week has been retained.

On the bench prop Brummer Badenhorst will provide front row cover in the only other change.
