Lions to start with Baby Bok against Bulls
The Lions have made one change to their XV that will face the Bulls on Saturday, with Ruan Botha in for the injured Franco van der Merwe.
Van der Merwe has been a warrior for the Lions with his commitment this season, missing only six minutes in the team's first 14 matches, but was injured in his 15th straight match last week.
His place is taken by Botha, who produced some excellent rugby for the Lions when he was called upon during the Australasian tour. He was also one of the standout players in the SA U21 side that won the IRB Junior World Championship.
Lions: 15 James Kamana, 14 Lionel Mapoe, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Butch James, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Joshua Strauss (capt), 7 Grant Hattingh, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Ruan Dreyer, 18 Etienne Oosthuizen, 19 Jaco Kriel, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 JR Esterhuizen, 22 Ruan Combrinck.
