The Cheetahs have kept the faith with their starting XV for the Super Rugby match against the Kings on Saturday.

Naka Drotske has made two changes to his bench with scrum-half Sarel Pretorius and prop Trevor Nyakane both passed fit.

Pretorius has recovered from a hamstring injury, while Nyakane has shaken off a hip complaint.

The Kings, on the other hand, have made several changes - including the benching of skipper Luke Watson.

Jacques Engelbrecht replaces Watson at No 8, with Rynier Bernardo coming into the second row.

In the backs Siyanda Grey and Michael Killian come on to the wings, with Roonie Cooke switching to the centres and Sergeal Petersen and Waylon Murray missing out.
