Lions send strong side to George

Despite initially threatening to send a weakened side to play the Kings in a friendly this afternoon, Lions coach Jon Mitchell has instead decided to pick an outfit strongly resembling his strongest available.

Lions fans will be most excited about the return to action of flyhalf Elton Jantjies, whose man-of-the-match heroics in last year’s Currie Cup final won the first silverware the union has seen in many years. Jantjies has played no part in the Lions preparations so far this year due to a broken bone in his hand, but should get a decent chance to prove his fitness against the Kings, before veteran Butch James takes over.

Former Sharks age-group scrumhalf Tian Meyer has been included on the bench, while impressive young lock forward Ruan Botha starts in the second row alongside Griquas import Hendrik Roodt.

Lions: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Doppies la Grange, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 James Kamana, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Joshua Strauss (captain), 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.

Substitutes: 16 Francois du Toit, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse, 18 Stephan Greeff, 19 Doppies le Roux, 20 Tian Meyer, 21 Butch James, 22 Lionel Mapoe.
