The Highveld Derby, take two.For the Lions, it’s last-chance saloon from here. Can they find their “winning way” and beat the Bulls in Johannesburg? If they don’t, then it’s surely curtains for their semi-final dreams.

The Bulls will be just as desperate, knowing that a slip-up here will take some of the pressure off whoever wins in Durban.

Kick-off is at 17h05

Golden Lions: 15 Earl Lewis, 14 Dusty Noble, 13 Alwyn Hollenbach, 12 Pieter Engelbrecht, 11 Johan  Jackson, 10 Herkie Kruger, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Willem  Alberts, 7 Franco  van der Merwe, 6 Cobus  Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Willem Stoltz, 4 Nico Luus, 3 Gert Muller, 2 Hans van Dyk, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Replacements: 16 Derek Harwood, 17 Kevin Buys, 18 Johan Snyman, 19 Todd Clever, 20 Derick Minnie, 21 Doppies la Grange, 22 Ruan  Boshoff.

Blue Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Marius Delport, 10 Burton Francis, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Dewald Potgieter, 7 Pedrie Wannenburg, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün (captain), 1 Jaco Engels.
Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Frik Kirsten/Dean Greyling, 18 Fudge Mabeta, 19 Jacques Burger, 20 Heini Adams, 21 Francois Brummer, 22 Tiger Mangweni.

  • Solid…committed…accept that tackling is part of his role in the side…and can do everything else the “other” Earl can do…

    Go Earl Lewis…

  • well done lions. it is amazing the difference in the team with their captain on the field. unlike the sharks that are shocking when muller is on the field.
