The Lions team to face the Blue Bulls this Saturday has been announced, with earlier fears of Josh Strauss missing the match confirmed.

There are a number of changes to the side that lost to Griquas last weekend, with Deon Helberg coming in for JR Esterhuizen on the right wing, Ruan Combrinck coming in for Anthony Volminck on the left wing and Alwyn Hollenbach returning to the midfield in place of Butch James. Michael Bondesio also starts ahead of Ross Cronje.

Amongst the forwards, Jaco Kriel drops to the bench in a swop with Cobus Grobbelaar, Hendrik Roodt replacing Strauss in the four jersey, CJ van der Linde missing out in favour of Jacobie Adriaanse and Bandise Maku and Callie Visagie swopping roles for the weekend.

There is a welcome return to the bench for Jaco Taute, who should see some game time in the second half after injuring himself in the Super Rugby campaign.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Willie Britz, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg (c).

Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 CJ van der Linde, 18 Michael Rhodes, 19 Jaco Kriel, 20 Ross Cronjé, 21 Butch James, 22 Jaco Taute.
