Former Sharks XV fullback Kobus de kock has been included on the Lions bench as one of a host of changes to the team that takes on Western Province at Newlands this weekend.

Andries Coetzee shifts to fullback this week, replacing Marnitz Boshoff, who moves to flyhalf for the injured Elton Jantjies. Chrysander Botha start at right wing. An all-new centre pair sees Lionel Mapoe return from injury to replace the benched Deon Helberg, while Lionel Cronje replaces Dylan Des fountain at 12 – the latter suffered a serious knee injury against the Sharks. Michael Bondesio also returns form injury to replace Guy Cronje at scrumhalf in the final change to the backline.

The forwards are relatively stable this week, with Willie Britz coming in at lock in the only change to the unit that competed well at Ellis Park last Friday. Chris van Zyl switched from 4 to 5 as a result, to replace Bok-bound Franco van der Merwe.

Hugo Kloppers replaces Britz as lock reserve, with Guy Cronje, Grant Janke and Ruhan Nel all dropping out of the squad this week.

Golden Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee , 14 Chrysander Botha, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Lionel Cronje, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Derick Minnie (captain), 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Chris van Zyl, 4 Willie Britz, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 CJ van der Linde.
Replacements: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Hugo Kloppers, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Kobus de Kock, 22 Deon Helberg
