Ellis Park is the venue for the last local game of the round, where the Stormes will finally be in action, away to the Lions.

Johan Ackermann’s men find themselves in unfamiliar territory (not at the bottom of the log) and will want to capitalise on last week’s away win against the Cheetahs.

The visitors, though, will be keen to open their account with a win against what is meant to be the weakest team in the SA conference (even if the Bulls seem determined to prove that statement incorrect).

Kick off in Jozi as at 19h10.

Lions: 15 Chrysander Botha, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Stefan Watermeyer, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Francois de Klerk, 8 Warren Whiteley (captain), 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Franco Mostert, 3 Julian Redelinghuys, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 Schalk van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Ruan Dreyer, 19 Luvuyiso Lusaseni, 20 Warwick Tecklenburg, 21 Ross Cronje, 22 Jacobus Jonker, 23 Coenie van Wyk.

Stormers: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Michael van der Spuy, 12 Jean de Villiers (captain), 11 Damian de Allende, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Schalk Burger, 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Manuel Carizza, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Replacements: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 Oliver Kebble, 18 Pat Cilliers, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Nizaam Carr, 21 Nic Groom, 22 Kurt Coleman, 23 Ryno Eksteen.

  • I didn’t call this or the Bulls game, but I did call Boshoff pushing for a Bok spot at 10.

    Lions playing the spoiling style of play that can be so hard to match.

  • Congrats to the lions they deserved the victory but they must be carefull this spoiling gameplan of them can cost them a few games you will always get at least one yellow card if the other team put you under pressure , they can be clad the second yellow wasn’t a red card but still we’ll done and they deserved to win. If they get a ref that doesn’t take shit they will be in big trouble.

  • I think the best thing from this game, is that the Sharks would have sat up and noticed that this Lions team is no walkover. They have been one of our bogey teams. Whenever we just show up and expect to win, they hand us our arses. So I expect the guys to be ready in two weeks time.
