Untested squad for Lions

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named a squad of 33 players to compete for the 2014 Super Rugby title, with only two capped Springboks in the mix amongst a bevy of unproven players.

A fair few of those selected have earned their stripes for the Lions in Currie Cup rugby and Ackermann will also take comfort from a handful of experienced players in the mix who have played a fair bit of Super Rugby before, both for the Lions and for various adopted franchises last year.

Franco van der Merwe, Derick Minnie and Willie Wepener will be key players up front, all boasting solid experience at this level, while the likes of Michael Bondesio and Elton Jantjies (once fit) will need to guide a backline featuring Lionel Mapoe as its only other established star.

Former Sharks age-group player Luvo Lusaseni has been included amongst the locks. Meanwhile, a strange selection sees experienced campaigner Bees Roux omitted in favour of a group of younger props.
