Lions keep winning formula

The Golden Lions have made no changes to their starting line-up for the Currie Cup clash against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

Head coach Johan Ackermann has retained the run-on side used in the victory over the Blue Bulls in Pretoria last weekend. This means Jaco Taute will remain on the bench.

There are two changes among the reserves as prop Ruan Dreyer and lock Ettiene Oosthuizen get call-ups in place of CJ van der Linde and flank Jaco Kriel respectively. Michael Rhodes will provide second row and loose forward cover.

Golden Lions – 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Ruan Combrinck, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Willie Britz, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg (c).
Subs: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Ruan Dreyer, 18 Etienne Oosthuizen, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Butch James, 22 Jaco Taute.
