Ackermann makes three Lions changes for Bulls

Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named a Super Rugby team with three changes for this week’s match against the Bulls on Saturday at Ellis Park in Johannesburg

In the forwards, Ackermann has made just two changes with Jacques van Rooyen starting at loosehead prop and Andries Ferreira earning a starting berth at lock.

Ackermann has also opted for consistency in the Lions backline, making just one change to the backs that featured last week against the Reds.

Anthony Volmink will earn his first Super Rugby start of the year having fully recovered from his long-term injury.
