Marnitz Boshoff, who started at 10 in the 23 – 62 demolition of the Blue Bulls last weekend, shifts to fullback, in place of the injured Chrysander Botha.
The scores were pretty even when Jantjies entered the fray last week, and his more direct approach saw the Lions run in six unanswered tries to hand the Blue Bulls a humiliating defeat.
In the forwards, CJ van der Linde starts ahead of newcomer Jacques van Rooyen, while injury to lock Chris van Zyl sees the impressive Willie Britz (aka LMFAO) shift into the second row.
Loose forwards Warwick Tecklenburg and Lambert Groenewald are promoted to the starting XV, while Hugo Kloppers, JJ Breedt and Andries Coetzee (back from injury) move on to the bench.
Golden Lions – 15 Marnitz Boshoff, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Robert de Bruyn, 12 Dylan Des Fountain, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Guy Cronjé, 8 Lambert Groenewald, 7 Derick Minnie (c), 6 Warwick Tecklenburg, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Willie Britz, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 CJ van der Linde.
Subs: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Jacques van Rooyen, 18 Hugo Kloppers, 19 JJ Breedt, 20 Jaco Kriel, 21 Tian Meyer, 22 Andries Coetzee.
