Lions team announced

The MTN Golden Lions team to take on the GWK Griquas at Ellis Park on Saturday Afternoon has been announced.

Griquas cannot avoid the promotion/relegation, as they are 8 points behind the Bulls and have decided to rest a few players for their upcoming promotion regulation match. The Lions on the other hand has everything to play for in this match, as they’ve slipped down the log in the last few weeks. A loss to the Griquas and a win by the Bulls will leave them short of a semifinal spot, a very unlikely scenario, but the Lions cannot be too careful.

The Lions are one of the teams that will not benefit from returning Springboks, coach Johan Ackermann has however made a few changes to his team, including returning Bok Franco van der Merwe.

In the forwards, Jacques van Rooyen moves in to the starting side at loosehead. Willie Wepener is also promoted from the bench at hooker and Julian Redelinghuys will start at tighthead, while Warwick Tecklenburg will start at six.

Golden Lions: 15 Chrysander Botha, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Andries Coetzee, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Derick Minnie (captain), 6 Warwick Tecklenburg, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Chris van Zyl, 3 Julian Redelinghuys, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Jacques van Rooyen.
Replacements: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Jacobus Roux, 18 Lambert Groenewald, 19 Willie Britz, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Lionel Cronje, 22 Kobus de Kock.
