Lions Change Two For Brumbies

Emirates Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has announced his team to face the Brumbies in Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon.  Ackermann has made two changes to the forwards for the encounter, as Martin Muller will start at lock and Robert Kruger moves into the starting lineup at flank.  The backline sees three personnel changes with Faf de Klerk starting at scrumhalf, Elton Jantjies returning to the starting flyhalf berth and Lionel Mapoe, having fully recovered from injury, starting at right wing.
As a result, Ruan Combrinck will shift to left wing for the match.  Kick-off is at 17:05 local South African time.  The match will be preceded by the Vodacom Cup quarter-final between the Golden Lions and SWD Eagles.
Tickets are still available for this doubleheader from Lionsrugby.computicket.com, including an exciting package deal for just R150 which includes Park and Ride SA transport to the match, lunch at the Weber braai area and a match ticket.
