We gave Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske stick about fielding a B team against the Crusaders. Lions coach Eugene Eloff has now decided to follow suit and hand the Canterbury side five points on a plate. Pathetic!
Out go Walter Venter, Jaco Pretorius, Janno Vermaak, Willie Wepenar and Anton van Zyl. The new-look midfield of Doppies le Grange and Jannie Boshoff are sure to provide tries aplenty. For the Crusaders that is.
Here is the Lions team:
Louis Ludik, Dusty Noble, Jannie Boshoff, Doppies la Grange, Rayno Benjamin, Jaco van Schalkwyk, Chris Jonck, Willem Alberts, Joe van Niekerk , Cobus Grobbelaar (capt.), Gerhard Mostert, Dewald Senekal , Ross Geldenhuys, Ethienne Reynecke, Heinke van der Merwe. Replacements: Willie Wepener, JC Janse van Rensburg, Anton van Zyl, Franco van Merwe, Jano Vermaak, Rudi Vogt, Justin St. Jerry.Tweet
