Lions Shuffle Pack For Bulls

Emirates Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has announced his team for Saturday’s clash with the Bulls, taking place at Loftus Versfeld.  In the only forward changes, Robbie Coetzee and Julian Redelinghuys will return to the front row for this encounter.  Meanwhile, in the backline there have been two positional changes with Andries Coetzee shifting to left wing and Harold Vorster moving across to outside centre.

As a result, Marnitz Boshoff will start at fullback and Howard Mnisi will slot into the inside centre berth.  Alwyn Hollenbach has been drafted in to the match day side after Lionel Mapoe failed a late fitness test.  Mapoe suffered a minor knock to the knee and has not yet recovered fully.

Kick-off is at 19:10 local time.
