Lions make changes for Blue Bulls in Currie Cup

Golden Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named his Currie Cup team to play the Blue Bulls at Ellis Park on Saturday.

Ackermann has made several changes to the team that narrowly went down to the Free State Cheetahs last week.

In the forwards, Robbie Coetzee is promoted to the starting line-up, while Ruan Dreyer and Stephan Greeff come into the team.

Jaco Kriel will also start this match at flank.

In the backline, Ross Cronje will start at scrumhalf with Deon Helberg also moving into the starting side at 13.

On the replacements bench, Chris van Zyl, Lambert Groenewald, Guy Cronje and Lionel Cronje have all been drafted in to provide cover.
