The Lions team to play Boland on Friday night has been announced and it shows a few changes, most notably at flyhalf where the former Blue Bull, Ruan Boshoff, will make his debut. Doppies La Grange will be at inside centre, as Walter Venter still has flu. Both wings are changed, with Shandre Frolick and Henno Mentz replacing Dusty Noble and Johan Jackson. Jano Vermaak returns to the starting lineup after missing last week’s game. The only change in the forwards sees former Shark Johan Snyman replacing Willem Stoltz at lock.
