Pretorius' first start of the 2013 Investec Super Rugby season results in Piet van Zyl dropping to the bench.
Experienced Springboks prop Coenie Oosthuizen will play off the bench, with the pine seeing a few changes from the Cheetahs loss to the Sharks last week.
Riaan Smith in for the Elgar Watts, Rynhard Landman replaces Waltie Vermeulen.
Vermeulen will require surgery after damaging his ligaments, resulting in Landman being called up by Cheetahs coaching staff.
