Lions Start for Rohan Janse van Rensburg

Rugby player dives over the line to score a try.

Lions head coach Swys de Bruin has made four changes to his starting line-up that will face the Bulls in Super Rugby at Loftus on Saturday.

They will be without form flanker Kwagga Smith, who is on compassionate leave, so Cyle Brink will start in Smith's place on the openside flank.

Elsewhere in the forwards, Franco Mostert swaps the locks for the back-row which means a place in the side at second-row for Marvin Orie.

The only other tweak to the side that beat the Jaguares sees Rohan Janse van Rensburg come in to start at centre in place of Harold Vorster.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Sylvian Mahuza, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, 11 Aphiwe Dyantyi, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronjé, 8 Warren Whiteley (c), 7 Franco Mostert, 6 Cyle Brink, 5 Marvin Orie, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Jacques van Rooyen
Replacements: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Dylan Smith, 18 Jacobie Adriaanse, 19 Lourens Erasmus, 20 Marnus Schoeman, 21 Marco Janse van Vuuren, 22 Harold Vorster, 23 Madosh Tambwe
