According to overnight media reports, the Lions have confirmed the loss of Bok prop CJ van der Linde for four weeks, following a groin injury sustained against the Hurricanes last Friday night.

The news comes as a real blow to the side, already reeling after first-choice loosehead Jc van Rensburg suffered a tournament ending foot injury in the same game. With the injury-prone van der Linde now also ruled out, the Lions will probably need to move the versatile Pat Cilliers across to the left hand side of the scrum, while bringing Jacobie Adriaanse in to pack down on the right.

Young players such as Caylib Oosthuizen and Ruan Dreyer are the likely bench candidates, as the Lions’ depth in the front row looks set to be sorely tested.

  • CJ, JC. I’d poop my pants if this was all a case of dyslexia causing both of them to be out when it was actually only one of them. :lol:

    Pretty much what id go for …only would change Hollenbach for Doppies …Doppies is immense on defence.

    Problem is who do we put on the bench for prop cover …

    Question.. Why did your coach not play Roodt in the game against the Hurricanes? And do you rate this Greeff guy?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 7) :

    Apperently Greef is rated by the coaching staff as more a lineout specialist than Roodt …meant nothing cause our lineouts still suffered.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 13) :

    I’d like to think so ..I have seen enough to warrant him a few more chances …

    Losing Maku was huge for us …he started getting his throws in last years CC spot on.

    Now we onto a 3rd hooker and a constant reshuffle amongst the locks which is not ideal to build synergy in the lineout.

  • @chaz (Comment 25) :

    i agree . Man i was disappointed last Friday . The Lions could so easily have won . Hopefully they are much better against the Sharks this weekend .

    i have a slight suspicion if we have a kicking contest the lions might be in with a shout . But we will see
