The Lions travel to Potch this evening to face the Leopards, with another five points at stake, five points that cement their lead at the top of the log as it stands. They are currently 5 points clear of Province in second, and a win make sure that a Province victory at Loftus will not eat into their lead.

The Leopards have pushed a few of the bigger teams so far this season, even taking a 14 – 3 lead against Western Province last weekend, and they will be hoping to put in a full 80 minute performance to rack up that second victory for the year.

The Lions have named an almost full strength squad, with only Deon van Rensburg not taking part this weekend, taking a deserved break. This match can only really go one way, with the Lions making sure they take care of the five points in their previous encounters with the smaller unions.

Leopards: Hoffman Maritz; Charl Weideman, Hennie Skorbinski, Joubert Engelbrecht (capt), Wynand Willis; Wesley Dunlop, Whestley Moolman; Spanner Pretorius, MB Lusaseni, Robert Kruger, Roan van Heerden, Brendon Snyman, Stoof Bezuidenhout, Gavin Williamson, BG Uys.

Reserves: Stoffel Duvenhage, Snoepie Coetzee, Bêrend Botha, Philip de Wet, Johan Laker, Clayton Durand, George Tossel.

Lions: 15. Jaco Taute, 14. Jannie Boshoff, 13. Doppies la Grange, 12. Alwyn Hollenbach, 11. Michael Killian, 10. Elton Jantjies, 9. Michael Bondesio, 8. Joshua Strauss (Captain), 7. Michael Rhodes, 6. Derick Minnie, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Johan (Joe) Snyman, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Bandise Maku, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg

Replacements: 16. Martin Bezuidenhout, 17. Jacobie Adriaanse, 18. Warren Whiteley, 19. Jaco Kriel, 20. Rudy Paige, 21. Burton Francis, 22. James Kamana
