Lions make six changes for Bulls at Loftus

Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named a team with six changes for this weekend’s Super Rugby match against the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld.

In the forwards there are two changes as Robbie Coetzee and Julian Redelinghuys will return to the front row for this encounter.

Meanwhile, in the backline there have been four changes – two positional with Andries Coetzee shifting to left wing and Harold Vorster moving across to outside centre.

As a result, Marnitz Boshoff will start at fullback and Howard Mnisi will slot into the inside centre berth.

Alwyn Hollenbach has been drafted in to the match day side after Lionel Mapoe failed a late fitness test. Mapoe sustained a minor knock to the knee and has not yet recovered fully.
