Franco back for Lions

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his side to face the Blue Bulls at Loftus this weekend, opting to include returning Bok squad member Franco van der Merwe in his starting team.

Van der Merwe comes into the number 5 shirt, with Hugo Kloppers the man to drop out. Another change in the pack sees Willie Wepener come in for Martin Bezuidenhout; interestingly, both Kloppers and Bezuidenhout find themselves dropped entirely from the 22 this week.

In another somewhat surprising move, flyhalf Elton Jantjies has also been dropped, after being one of the few Lions backs to really play well against the Sharks. Marnitz Boshoff is back at flyhalf with the defensively-suspect Chrysander Botha picked at fullback.

Lions: 15 Chrysander Botha, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Robert De Bruin, 12 Dylan Des Fountain, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Guy Cronje, 8 Willie Britz, 7 Derick Minnie (captain), 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Chris van Zyl, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Jacques Van Rooyen.
Replacements: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 CJ van der Linde, 18 Lambert Groenewald, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Tian Meyer, 21 Elton Jantjies, 22 Lionel Cronje.
