The Golden Lions Rugby Union announced the MTN Lions team to play in their second match of the 2012 Vodacom Super Rugby competition against the Hurricanes on Friday, 2 March 2012 at a press conference this afternoon.
Following their 27 – 25 victory over the Toyota Cheetahs this past weekend, the coaching staff and team has learnt many lessons and are spending the week correcting things they were not 100% happy with in the Cheetahs match.
The coaches have made three changes to the starting line up – Michael Killian replaces James Kamana following a knock to the head during the Cheetahs match and Stephan Greeff will make his debut for the MTN Lions to replace Wikus van Heerden who has been ruled out or three weeks due to a concussion. In a tactical change, Cobus Grobbelaar has been moved to the bench while Warren Whiteley will start at Number 8, Joshua Strauss at Right Flanker and Derick Minnie at Left Flanker.
