Elton returns for Lions

Flyhalf Elton Jantjies has been passed fit and will start in the all-important number 10 jersey for the Lions, against Western Province in this weekend’s Currie Cup semi-final at Newlands.

Jantjies replaces Marnitz Boshoff, who in turn moves to fullback in place of Chrysander Botha. The merry-go-round continues as the Namibian international moves to right wing, with Deon Helberg the man to drop out of the team (and in fact the 22) as a result. The other backline change sees Michael Bondesio again out, with Ross Cronje coming in for another start.

Up front, the front and back rows both see changes; CJ van der Linde and Ruan Dreyer come in to start at prop, with both Julian Redelinghuys and Jacques van Rooyen included on a 5-man forward bench. Jaco Kriel comes in for Warwick Tecklenberg in a rotational change at 6.

The decision to pick only two backline reserves sees Kobus de Kock and Lionel Cronje both fall out; Tian Meyer covers scrumhalf and Robert de Bruyn pretty much everything else.

Lions: 15 Marnitz Boshoff, 14 Chrysander Botha, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Andries Coetzee, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronje, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Derick Minnie (capt), 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Chris van Zyl, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 CJ van der Linde.
Replacements: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Julian Redelinghuys, 19 Willie Britz, 20 Warwick Tecklenburg, 21 Tian Meyer, 22 Robert de Bruyn.
