Strong Lions for Bull fight

Apart from an uncapped greenhorn at inside centre, Xerox Golden Lions coach Johan Ackermann has been able to name a strong side for Saturday’s Currie Cup opener against the Blue Bulls at Ellis Park.

There have been some setbacks, with the loss of Alwyn Hollenbach, Julian Redelinghuys and Michael Bondesio weakening the Super Rugby-strength side, but Ackermann has found able replacements for the latter two in Ruan Dreyer and Ross Cronje. Harold Vorster, a Junior Bok represetative in 2013, will play inside centre with Stokkies Hanekom winning a reprieve and starting outside him. Lionel Mapoe thus moves wingward, with Anthony Volminck another injury casualty.

Former Sharks and Griquas player Howard Mnisi has been named on the bench.

Xerox Golden Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Lionel Mapoe, 13 Stokkies Hanekom, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Ross Cronjé, 8 Warren Whiteley (captain), 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Luvuyiso Lusaseni, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 Schalk van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Armand van der Merwe, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Willie Britz, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Ricky Schroeder, 21 Jaco van der Walt, 22 Howard Mnisi.
