Baywatch back for Lions

Baywatch Grobbelaar will lead a Lions side that sees the return of a number of first-choice players to face Griquas.

Coach Hans Coetzee rested a number of individuals during last week’s 40-19 win over the Leopards, but facing the log-leading Griquas, he has retained a number of players who did duty in the opening two rounds.

Props JC Janse van Rensburg and Gert Muller return from injury, while Nico Luus comes into the second row. Grobbelaar replaces Derick Minnie.

Herkie Kruger returns at flyhalf, which sees Earl Rose revert to fullback. Alwyn Hollenbach in turn moves to outside centre, while Johan Jackson comes in for Henno Mentz on the wing.

Lions Earl Rose, Dusty Noble, Alwyn Hollenbach, Walter Venter, Johan Jackson, Herkie Kruger, Jano Vermaak, Willem Alberts, Franco van der Merwe, Baywatch Grobbelaar, Willem Stoltz, Nico Luus, Gert Muller, Hans van Dyk, JC Janse van Rensburg.
Subs: Derek Harwood, Kevin Buys, Johan Snyman, Derick Minnie, Chris Jonck, Rouan Cloete, Henno Mentz.
