Lions change backline for Blues clash

The Lions have suffered yet another injury set back with news that Alwyn Hollenbach is returning to South Africa following a knee injury, while coach John Mitchell has been forced to name a changed side to face the Blues this weekend.

The loss of Hollenbach has resulted in a backline shuffle, with Jaco Taute moving even closer to the action in 12, while Lionel Mapoe joins him in midfield. Michael Killian comes into the starting line up on the wing, while Ruan Combrinck comes onto the bench.

The forward pack is left unchanged following a good showing against the Chiefs, with Grant Hattingh looking especially good on the flank, as well as doubling as a line out option.

Hollenbach’s place in the tour group is taken by Anthony Volmink, who is on his way to join the team in New Zealand.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee,14 Deon Van Rensburg,13 Lionel Mapoe,12 Jaco Taute,11 Michael Killian,10 Elton Jantjies,9 Ross Cronje,8 Joshua Strauss (c),7 Grant Hattingh,6 Derick Minnie,5 Ruan Botha,4 Franco Van der Merwe,3 Patric Cilliers,2 Callie Visagie,1 JC Janse van Rensburg
