Ackermann keeps Lions unchanged for Crusaders

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named an unchanged starting Super Rugby team to play the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday with Marnitz Boshoff returning to the squad.

The Lions earned their second victory of the 2015 season last weekend when they beat the Blues in Albany and Ackermann is hoping his starting team will deliver again this week and has kept the faith his his players.

The only changes to the match day squad are on the replacements bench with new Lions recruit Andries Ferreira providing lock cover and Marnitz Boshoff returning to the match day 23.

The Lions have never beaten the Crusaders in Christchurch.
