Two changes to the team that went down to the Sharks

Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen will not play against the Stormers in Bloemfontein this weekend after failing a concussion test.

The Bok playmaker took a knock against the Crusaders in Round Nine and has still not recovered fully after sitting out the defeat to the Sharks in Durban last week.

Elgar Watts will continue in his place with coach Naka Drotske making two changes to the team that went down to the Sharks at Kings Park.

Wing Raymond Rhule replaces Cornal Hendricks and in the second row Andries Ferreira comes in for Lodewyk de Jager who broke a finger against the Sharks whilst flank Pieter Labuschagne remains sidelined with a groin injury.
