Cape Town - Free State Cheetahs coach Franco Smith has named his team for Saturday’s Currie Cup semi-final against the Golden Lions in Bloemfontein.

Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.

Smith has made a few changes to the team that beat Griquas 63-26 earlier this month.

In the backline, a fit-again Sergeal Petersen is back at right wing, replacing Rayno Benjamin.

Up front, Paul Schoeman replaces Henco Venter at flank, while Torsten van Jaarsveld is back at hooker in place of Jacques du Toit.
