Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Rory Duncan has named his team for Friday night’s PRO14 clash against Scottish side Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun Stadium.

Duncan made several changes to the team that went down 25-20 to the Cardiff Blues in Wales last weekend.

In the backline, Niel Marais starts at flyhalf in place of Fred Zeilinga, while Malcolm Jaer replaces Sibahle Maxwane at left wing.

Up front, there are two new starting props, with Charles Marais replacing Ox Nche at loosehead and Luan de Bruin coming in for Johan Coetzee at tighthead.

Tom Botha, who was a prop replacement last week, picked up an injury and is on his way home.

In the second row, Reniel Hugo replaces Rynier Bernardo, while in the loose trio Henco Venter replaces Paul Schoeman.

Kick-off for Friday’s match is scheduled for 21:35 (SA time).
