The Lions team to take on the Sharks at Mr Price Kings Park this Saturday shows two changes from the team that so comprehensively beat the Cheetahs in the opening round.
Derick Minnie is injured and is replaced by Warren Whiteley, who himself is only just returning from injury. Whiteley’s spot on the bench is taken by Jaco Kriel.
The rest of the team is unchanged and will give the Lions quite a bit of continuity in their quest to defend the title.
Lions: Andries Coetzee, JR Esterhuizen, Lionel Mapoe, Waylon Murray, Anthony Volmink, Butch James, Michael Bondesio, Derick Minnie, Josh Strauss, Cobus Grobbelaar, Franco van der Merwe, Hendrik Roodt, Jacobie Adriaanse, Callie Visagie, JC Janse van Rensburg (capt.).
Replacements: Francois du Toit, CJ van der Linde, Willie Britz, Warren Whiteley, Ross Cronje, Guy Cronje, Ruan Combrinck.Tweet
