Brussow made his Boks debut in last year's 42-6 win over England

Springboks rejects Heinrich Brussow, Meyer Bosman, Adriaan Strauss and Wian du Preez will play for the Free State Cheetahs against the Lions on Saturday.

All four featured in a South African XV which beat a Namibian XV 36-7 last week but none made the hosts' Test squad.

Centre Bosman played three Tests in 2005-06. Hooker Strauss played in five from the bench in the 2008 Tri-Nations.

Flanker Brussow played his only game for SA as a replacement in the win over England last November at Twickenham.

In the absence of regular captain Juan Smith, who was training with the Boks, number eight Hendro Scholtz will lead the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

Cheetahs: Hennie Daniller, Danwel Demas, Corne Uys, Meyer Bosman, JW Jonker, Jacques-Louis Potgieter, Tewis de Bruyn; Wian Du Preez, Adriaan Strauss, Kobus Calldo, Nico Breedt, David de Villiers, Heinrich Brussow, Francois Uys, Hendro Scholtz (captain).

Replacements: Richard Strauss, WP Nel, Frans Viljoen, Kabamba Floors, Gerrie Odendaal, Louis Strydom, Fabian Juries.
