Australia international Pat McCabe will return to the Brumbies line-up for the visit of the Cheetahs.

McCabe has been sidelined since having surgery on his shoulder following the World Cup, however he has been cleared to return on the wing on Saturday.

McCabe replaces Robbie Coleman, who has a groin injury, with Jesse Mogg switching to full-back.

Lock Ben Hand also returns for the Brumbies, with Leon Power making way.

Recovered

The Cheetahs have made four changes to their line-up for the trip to Canberra.

Coenie Oosthuizen, Ashley Johnson, George Earle and Cameron Jacobs all come into the starting XV, with the Cheetahs desperate to register their first win of the campaign after defeats to the Lions and the Bulls.

Oosthuizen returns at prop having recovered from a neck injury, Earle replaces Andries Ferreira in the second row and Johnson is preferred to Davon Raubenheimer at No.8.

Jacobs comes into the side for Rocco Jansen on the right wing with Ryno Benjamin joining the bench.
