Butch James returns to the Lions side at inside centre for their match against the Sharks, with Jaco Taute ruled out for several months after shoulder surgery. James has himself just returned from a 4-week ban for dangerous play.

Uncapped winger Anthonie Volminck comes in on the left in place of Michael Killian in the only other change to the back line that started against the Force last week, while the loss of Ruan Botha to the SA Under 20 side sees Hendrik Roodt elevated to the starting lineup to partner Franco van der Merwe in the second row.

Changes on the bench see Etienne Oosthuizen come in for Jaco Kriel and Waylon Murray make his long-awaited return, at the expense of James Kamana.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Butch James, 11 Anthonie Volminck, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Joshua Strauss (captain), 7 Grant Hattingh, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 CJ van der Linde

Substitutes: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 JC Janse van Rensburg, 18 Etienne Oosthuizen, 19 Cobus Grobbelaar, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Waylon Murray, 22 Ruan Combrinck
