Rhule returns as Cheetahs change one for Bulls




Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske has made one change to the team that beat the Kings for this weekend’s crucial Super Rugby match against the Bulls in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

Drotske has included Springbok winger Raymond Rhule in his starting line-up after the youngster was relegated to the bench for last week’s game against the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth.

“Raymond was dropped because of his inability on defence,” said Drotske.

“He has, however, showed that he can defend well after he came on as a replacement.

“He made one or two crucial tackles and did well when he got the ball in hand. He is the type of player you want in your team against a side like the Bulls, so he gets another shot at it.”

Rayno Benjamin, who was selected ahead of Rhule for the Kings clash, returns to the replacement bench.


Hennie Daniller, Raymond Rhule, Johann Sadie, Robert Ebersohn, Willie le Roux, Elgar Watts, Piet van Zyl, Philip van der Walt, Lappies Labuschagne, Heinrich Brussow, Francois Uys, Lodewyk de Jager, Lourens Adriaanse, Adriaan Strauss (captain), Coenie Oosthuizen.

Replacements: Ryno Barnes, Trevor Nyakane, Ligtoring Landman, Boom Prinsloo, Sarel Pretorius, Riaan Smit, Rayno Benjamin.
