Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has rotated his Super Rugby team to play the Cheetahs in Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday

In the forwards, Ackermann has chosen to start Jacques van Rooyen and Ruan Dreyer in the front row.

Andries Ferreira will partner with Martin Muller in the lock pairing, while Warwick Tecklenburg returns to the starting side at flank.

In the backline, Courtnall Skosan returns to start at left wing which results in Ruan Combrinck shifting back to right wing.
