Jantjies keeps Butch benched in Currie Cup Semi

Lions coach John Mitchell has named his team to play Western Province in the Currie Cup Semi-finals at Coca-Cola park with Butch James on the bench.

Mitchell has named Elton Jantjies as his starting fly half and named Alwyn Hollenbach at 12.

The Lions finished on top of the Currie Cup table which means that they are playing their first home semi final in 12 years.

If the Lions beat Western Province they will host the 2011 Currie Cup final.
