Warren Whiteley, who was a late injury withdrawal ahead of the Lions’ last match against the Stormers, returns to captain the side against the Chiefs this weekend, as one of six changes to the starting team.

Willie Britz moves benchwards to accommodate Whiteley at number 8, with Warwick Tecklenberg dropping out of the squad. Martin Muller also returns at lock, displacing Luvo Lusaseni to the bench who takes over from Pumas lock Rudi Matthee.

At the back, coach Johan Ackermann has made further changes. Courtnall Skosaan switches wings, making space for Deon van Rensburg on the right (with Anthony Volminck dropping out). Faf de Klerk returns for Ross Cronje at scrumhalf after playing off the bench in Cape Town, while a surprise move sees Elton Jantjies start at flyhalf, with Marnitz Boshoff taking a seat on the bench.

Hooker Armand van der Merwe and loosehead Jacques van Rooyen make their way onto the bench, replacing Malcolm Marx and Corne Fourie respectively.
