Lions make one Currie Cup change for Sharks

Lions interim coach Johan Ackermann has made one change to his side that will play the Sharks in a Currie Cup match at Ellis Park on Saturday.

Ackermann, however, could make further late changes to the side as there are still some injury concerns.

There is uncertainty whether lock Michael Rhodes will replace the injured Hendrik Roodt, while Jaco Taute could make his return to the starting XV in the place of Alwyn Hollenbach.

Hollenbach is still nursing an injury and his selection for Saturday’s match will be confirmed only on Friday.
