JOHANNESBURG - Springbok flanker Oupa Mohoje will captain the Cheetahs against the Kings in their Pro 14 match on Saturday in Bloemfontein. 

This match will mark his 51st game for the Cheetahs, with kick-off at 5pm.

The Cheetahs will still be aiming to close the gap on second placed Munster in Conference A, and a bonus point win will put them within three points of the Irish province.

"We need to focus on our standards – the detail and discipline, the small things and what we need to do," said Mohoje. "Derbies are always more personal and we are focussing on us and what we need to do to get our execution right.”
