The Chiefs have announced their team to play the Cheetahs at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday afternoon.

After coming away with a draw after a 19 point haul in the final eleven minutes against the Bulls last week, the defending champions have made 10 changes to their line-up.

For their last match of their tour, the front row remains the same, however Michael Fitzgerald moves to flanker and is joined on the other side of the scrum by Sam Cane. Liam Messam starts in the No. 8 Jersey and Augustine Pulu will take control at halfback. In the backs, Tim Nanai-Williams and Gareth Anscombe will start at winger and fullback respectively.

Mahonri Schwalger has been replaced on the bench by Nathan Harris. Schwalger has experienced an eye issue and has returned to New Zealand along with Ben Afeaki, who also went home as a precautionary measure after receiving a knock at training prior to the Bulls game.

New additions to the reserves this week are Liam Squire, Tanerau Latimer, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Anton Lienert-Brown and Mils Muliana.
