The changes are good that the Lions will have to say goodbye to Ruan Dreyer and Rohan Janse van Rensburg.
Media reports suggest that former Lions coach Johan Ackermann has been eager to get the Lions due for Gloucester.
With All Black John Afoa joining Bristol at the end of the season Ackermann will need the likes of Dreyer.
Janse van Rensburg has been on loan to Sale Sharks but it seems that he is also going to join his former coach.
This will be a huge loss for the Lions.
