The final game of the weekend takes us to Johannesburg, where the bottom of the log Lions take on a Bulls team that has its confidence back after the slight stumble they took a few weeks ago with losses against the Blues and Stormers.
The Lions are still counting their walking wounded, with key players still out of action, but at least have their first choice flyhalf to take on the Bulls. The Lions have again shuffled the backline, with poor Jaco Taute back in the midfield, after playing their two weeks ago, and the young Andries Coetzee taking the reign at fullback.
The Bulls welcome back Dewald Potgieter, who will make his impact off the bench as he sees action for the first time this season. JJ Engelbrecht gets a run at outside centre as Johan Sadie drops to the bench, with rumours suggesting that Sadie has some niggling injury.
