Lions reshuffle pack for Kings Park

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has resisted making too many changes to his run-on side after Friday’s defeat to the Hurricanes at home and will take on the Sharks with the same backline. A few changes have been made up front, with more still on the bench.

In a huge blow to the side, talisman loos forward Jaco Kriel will not make the trip down to Durban due to a groin injury. Warwick Tecklenburg comes in to fill what the Lions website quaintly names the “right flanker” position – a term last used in the mid nineties – with Derick Minnie shifting to the open side. In the other change, Jacques van Rooyen starts at loose head prop ahead of Hond van der Merwe.

Marnitz Boshoff, perhaps a little fortunately, retains his position at flyhalf after a poor day with the boot last Friday, with Elton Jantjies covering off the wood.

There’s an entirely new forward contingent on the bench; Julian Redelinghuys and Robbie Coetzee are both fit and appear for the first time, while Ruaan Lerm and JP du Preez are young players looking to make their debuts in the competition. Centre Harold Vorster, named in 23, is also uncapped at this level.

Lions: 15. Andries Coetzee, 14. Ruan Combrinck, 13. Lionel Mapoe, 12. Howard Mnisi, 11. Courtnall Skosan, 10. Marnitz Boshoff, 9. Ross Cronje, 8. Warren Whiteley (c), 7. Warwick Tecklenburg, 6. Derick Minnie, 5. Franco Mostert, 4. Martin Muller, 3. Ruan Dreyer, 2. Malcolm Marx, 1. Jacques van Rooyen
Subs: 16. Robbie Coetzee, 17. Schalk van der Merwe, 18. Julian Redelinghuys, 19. JP du Preez, 20. Ruaan Lerm, 21. Faf de Klerk, 22. Elton Jantjies, 23. Harold Vorster
