Bok flyer back for CheetahsSHARE
Springbok tourist Raymond Rhule has been reinstated in the Free State Cheetahs starting XV, after he was axed as a result of poor form.
Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské, who told Rhule to work on some aspects of his game, made three changes to the team to face Griquas in Kimberley on Saturday.
Drotské moved Piet Lindeque from the left wing to the right wing in place of Riaan Smit, with Rhule reclaiming his No.11 jersey.
In the only change to the forwards Francois Uys comes at lock in place of Freddy Ngoza, who drops down to the replacements bench.
Philip van der Walt also makes his long-awaited return from a shoulder injury and will sit on the bench, with Davon Raubenheimer dropping out of the matchday 22.
