Sarel Pretorius was the only backline player retained with the same jersey in the Toyota Free State team to play the Cell C Sharks this weekend. Coach Rory Duncan is clearly unhappy with the team’s defeat against the Steval Pumas last weekend and acted accordingly.
Willie du Plessis will start at 10, Joubert Engelbrecht at 12 and Francois Venter at 13 in a reshuffled backline, while JP du Plessis will move to the wing to replace injured Raymond Rhule.

Maphutho Dolo will also make a first start on the wing.

There is a return for fit-again flanker Lappies Labuschagne and a new front-row in George Marich and Caylib Oosthuizen.

The team is: Rayno Benjamin, Maphutha Dolo, Francois Venter, Joubert Engelbrecht, JP du Plessis, Willie du Plessis, Sarel Pretorius, Lappies Labuschagne, Neil Claassen, Tienie Burger, Francois Uys, Henco Venter, George Marich, Torsten van Jaarsveld ©, Caylib Oosthuizen. Replacements: AJ le Roux, Rudolph Botha, Werner Lourens, Vincent Jobo, Shaun Venter, Pieter-Steyn de Wet, AJ Coertzen.
