Boshoff starts at flyhalf for Lions against Blues

Lions head coach Johan Ackerman has named his team to play the Blues at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Saturday with Marnitz Boshoff returning to the starting line up.

Ackermann has made several changes to the Lions team that lost last week to the Sharks in Durban.

In the forwards, Robbie Coetzee returns to the starting line-up and Willie Britz will start at flank. As a result, both Willie Wepener and Warwick Tecklenburg will provide cover off the wood.

Meanwhile, in the backline, Marnitz Boshoff shifts back to flyhalf. Courtnall Skosan, JW Jonker and Coenie van Wyk all earn spaces in the starting XV as Elton Jantjies and Ruan Combrinck are moved to the bench to provide backline cover.
