Lions bench Jantjies for Blue Bulls in Currie Cup

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his Currie Cup team to play the Bulls at Loftus in the third round with Elton Jantjies dropping to the bench.

Ackermann has made several changes to his side which narrowly lost 33-25 to The Sharks in Durban last weekend.

In the backline, Marnitz Boshoff will start at flyhalf with Chrysander Botha promoted from the bench and as a result, Elton Jantjies drops to the replacements bench.

In the forwards, lock Franco van der Merwe has returned from Springbok duty and will start this weekend.

Willie Wepener has also been included in the starting team after recently joining the squad.
