The curtain raiser to the main game of the weekend sees the Lions take on the Reds at Coca Cola Park in a game which the Lions have to win to gain some much needed confidence.

The Reds, coming off a fantastic win against the Cheetahs, will already be full of confidence and will target this match as their four pointer in South Africa.

The Lions have opted to start with Andre Pretorius at flyhalf to bring a much needed calming influence to the team. This should give the Lions a better chance at winning this game.

I predict an upset with the Lions narrowly winning this match.

Lions: 15. Michael Killian, 14. Lionel Mapoe, 13. Waylon Murray, 12. Doppies la Grange (Captain), 11. Deon van Rensburg, 10. AndrΓ© Pretorius, 9. Jano Vermaak, 8. Warren Whiteley, 7. Joshua Strauss, 6. Cobus Grobbelaar, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. David Bulbring, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Bandise Maku, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg

Replacements: 16. Edgar Marutlulle, 17. Jacobie Adriaanse, 18. Michael Rhodes, 19. Derick Minnie, 20. Rory Kockott, 21. Elton Jantjies, 22. Jaco Taute

Reds: 15. Mike Harris, 14. Rod Davies, 13. Digby Ioane, 12. Anthony Faingaa, 11. Luke Morahan, 10. Quade Cooper, 9. Will Genia, 8. Leroy Houston, 7. Beau Robinson, 6. Scott Higginbotham, 5. James Horwill (Captain), 4. Adam Wallace-Harrison, 3. James Slipper, 2. Saia Faingaa, 1. Greg Holmes

Replacements: 16. James Hanson, 17. Ben Daley, 18. Rob Simmons, 19. Radike Samo, 20. Jake Schatz / Ian Prior, 22. Ben Tapuai
