The MTN Lions have made three changes following on their away win against the Bulls this past weekend to maintain their unbeaten run in Currie Cup 2011.
Despite the news of Janno Vermaak’s defection the Lions have been able to name a powerful lineup for their clash against the Cheetahs this weekend.
In line with Lions policy Vermaak has been released with immediate effect and Michael Bondesio has taken over at 9. But the only changes that are forced are at the back where Waylon Murray’s injury has been assessed as a season ending one, resulting in John Mitchell taking a massive gamble as he has moved Lionel Mapoe into the 13 berth, bringing in Jaco Taute at 15 and shifting the increasingly good Michael Killian to the wing.
The team is:
|14||Right Wing||Deon||Van Rensburg|
|8||Number Eight||Joshua||Strauss (c)|
|5||Right Lock||Franco||Van der Merwe|
|4||Left Lock||Wikus||Van Heerden|
|1||Loosehead Prop||JC||Janse van Rensburg|
