Oupa placed back in Cheetahs starting line-up

Toyota Free State Cheetahs coach, Naka Drotske, has placed flanker, Oupa Mohoje, back into his starting line-up for the Super Rugby clash against the Cell C Sharks at the Free State Stadium on Saturday.

Mohoje was initially left out of the clash to be rested, in order to follow with the South African Rugby Union's (SARU) protocols, in which Springbok players should not be over played, however, due to flank Tienie Burger’s recent injury, the 24-year-old will be positioned back into the starting team.

The rest of the starting line-up, which was announced on Tuesday, will remain the same.
