Lions make one Currie Cup change for Pumas

Golden Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has made one change to the Currie Cup side that beat Western Province for this week’s Currie Cup clash against the Pumas at Ellis Park on Friday.

Ackermann has opted for consistency, making just one change to his starting side so in the forwards, Martin Muller will start at lock in place of the injured MB Lusaseni.

On the bench, Derick Minnie will return from injury to provide cover.

Malcolm Marx will need to pass a fitness test later in the week in order to be included on the wood.
