The Lions will be fielding three Cronjés in their match day 23, brothers Guy (flyhalf reserve) and Ross (scrumhalf), and Utility back and former Province discard Lionel. Jaco Kriel also gets a start, after playing some huge matches off the bench. The short and stocky flank has been a running revelation this season and will be looking to cement his side in the starting 15 with a big 800 for the men from Egoli.
On the bench, Chris van Zyl, Lambert Groenewald come in to provide cover, while Tiaan Meyer drops out of the match 23 altogether.
