New back three for Lions


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his side to face the Blues in Super Rugby this weekend, making sweeping changes to his backline, including a completely new back three.

In perhaps the most anticipated switch, Marnitz Boshoff moves from fullback into the flyhalf position that he occupied with some panache earlier in the season. Elton Jantjies, who looked a little underdone against the Sharks last week, moves to the bench. Coenie van Wyk earns a first start at fullback, while Courtnall Skosan and JW Jonker come in as the wings. Ruan Combricnk (bench) and Chrysander Botha (stands) lose their starting spots as a result.

Rotational changes to the pack see Robbie Coetzee start at hooker ahead of Willie Wepener and Willie Britz come in at blindside flank for Warrick Tecklenberg.
