Coach Eugene Eloff has retained the Xerox Lions side that lost 21-7 to the Blue Bulls for Saturday’s Currie Cup match against the Free State Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.
With concerns over the fitness of Rayno Benjamin, Dusty Noble has been bracketed in at wing, but the rest of the starting team shows no changes.
On the bench, Anton van Zyl too is not a certainty after returning from injury and Justin Wheeler has been placed on standby.
In Benjamin’s case, should he fail a fitness test and Noble start, Louis Strydom will take his place on the bench.
