Loffie Eloff has made a single change to the Lions team to take on the Blues at Ellis Park this weekend.
Debutant at number 8 last week, RW Kember losese out to the returning Willem Alberts. Alberts joins Baywatch Grobbelaar and Franco van der Merwe in a very big back row that will need to fire on all cylinders to give their side any chance of an upset.
Johann van Niekerk and Earl Rose, both of whom had a dramatic impact off the bench last week, will again start among the reserves as Eloff keeps faith with the backline that tamed the Cheetahs on their home turf.
Louis Ludik, Dusty Noble, Jaco Pretorius, Doppies le Grange, Ryno Benjamin, Louis Strydom, Jano Vermaak, Willem Alberts, Franco van der Merwe, Cobus Grobbelaar (capt), Gerhard Mostert, Anton van Zyl, Ross Geldenhuys, Willie Wepener, Heinke van der Merwe.
Gavin Williamson, Gert-Andries van der Merwe, Alten Hulme, Joe van Niekerk, Chris Jonck, Earl Rose, Jaco van Schalkwyk.Tweet
