Lions coach Eugene Eloff has retained the starting team that beat the Blue Bulls two weeks ago for the Absa Currie Cup match against the Free State Cheetahs at Coca-Cola Park on Friday night.

There is one change to the bench, however, with prop Ross Geldenhuys replacing Gert Muller who is on a strength building programme.

The team is:

Louis Ludik, Michael Killian, Jaco Pretorius, Doppies la Grange, Rayno Benjamin, Earl Rose, Jano Vermaak, Willem Alberts, Franco van der Merwe , Cobus Grobbelaar, Gerhard Mostert, Anton van Zyl, Lawrence Sephaka, Willie Wepener, Heinke van der Merwe.

Replacements: Ethienne Reynecke, Ross Geldenhuys, Ernst Joubert, Justin Wheeler, Chris Jonck, Louis Strydom, Jaco van Schalkwyk.


  • I think we can win this one…Cheetahs look a bit thin…We’ve lost our last 4 Currie Cup matches against them, time to turn the tables!

  • If breakdown domination really does win games…we’re in for a very competitive game here.

    I still think the Lions will win it though…but probably not by much.

  • The Cheetahs loosies seem to be their strong point in this starting XV, so that will be a good contest.
