The Bulls take on the Lions at Loftus with both teams coming off losses last weekend, the Bulls’ loss a bit heavier than that of the Lions, and both teams will want to hit back immediately and ensure they remain within touching distance of the leaders on the log.

Warwick Tecklenburg is the only change for the Bulls, coming in for the injured Deon Stegmann. They took a hammering at the hands of Western Province last weekend, and will want to ensure that the home ground advantage they have in this match counts for at least four points on the log.

The Lions have lost Josh Strauss to injury, and have made a number of changes with Alwyn Hollenbach returning to midfield and two new wings being named in Deon Helberg and Ruan Combrinck. Hendrik Roodt also returns to the tight five while Bandise Maku takes a break in favour of Callie Visagie in the front row.

Blue Bulls: 15 Clayton Blommetjies, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Francois Venter, 11 JJ Engelbrecht, 10 Louis Fouché, 9 Ruan Snyman, 8 Dewald Potgieter (captain), 7 CJ Stander, 6 Warwick Tecklenburg, 5 Grant Hattingh, 4 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Dawie Steyn.

Replacements: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Frik Kirsten, 18 Cornell Hess, 19 Jean Cook, 20 Rudi Paige, 21 Lionel Cronjé, 22 Jürgen Visser.

Golden Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Willie Britz, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg (captain).

Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 CJ van der Linde, 18 Michael Rhodes, 19 Jaco Kriel, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Butch James, 22 Jaco Taute.
