Lions change two for Stormers match
Interim Lions coach Johan Ackermann has stuck with continuity, making only two changes to the run-on side for their Super Rugby clash against the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.
Prop JC Janse van Rensburg replaces CJ van der Linde, who could play off the bench provided he passes a late fitness test.
The only other change to the starting XV sees Jacobie Adriaanse replacing injured Pat Cilliers at tighthead prop.
Lions team: Andries Coetzee, Deon van Rensburg, Lionel Mapoe, Butch James, Anthonie Volminck, Elton Jantjies, Tian Meyer, Joshua Strauss (captain), Grant Hattingh, Derick Minnie, Franco van der Merwe, Hendrik Roodt, Jacobie Adriaanse, Callie Visagie, JC Janse van Rensburg.
Replacements: Martin Bezuidenhout, CJ van der Linde/Ruaan Dreyer, Ruan Botha, Jaco Kriel, Michael Bondesio, Waylon Murray, Ruan Combrinck.
