It’s the second match in round 1, with Naka Drotske’s intrepid orange warriors heading to face the current trophy-holders.

Will the lack of a permanent coach and the ongoing back-room upheavals serve to unsettle the Lions this season, or perhaps even galvanise them? The Cheetahs, on the other hand, have lost players to overseas but are nevertheless always strong in this competition.

Kick-off in Johannesburg is at 17h05.

Golden Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 JR Esterhuizen, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Waylon Murray, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Butch James, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Derick Minnie, 7 Joshua Strauss, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco Van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC van Rensburg (captain).
Substitutes: 16 Francois Du Toit, 17 CJ Van der Linde, 18 Willie Britz, 19 Warren Whiteley, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Guy Cronje, 22 Ruan Combrinck.

Cheetahs: 15 Hennie Daniller, 14 Nico Scheepers, 13 Rob Ebersohn (capt), 12 Andries Strauss, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Riaan Smit, 9 Piet van Zyl, 8 Davon Raubenheimer, 7 Pieter Labuschagne, 6 Boom Prinsloo, 5 Izak van der Westhuizen, 4 Waltie Vermeulen, 3 Marcel van der Merwe, 2 Hercu Liebenberg, 1 Trevor Nyakane
Substitutes: 16 Elandre Huggett, 17 Schalk van der Merwe, 18 Francois Uys, 19 Kabamba Floors, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Sias Ebersohn, 22 Philip Snyman
