Lions make four changes for Sharks match

Faf de Klerk will wear the Lions Super Rugby jersey again

Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named a team with four changes to the side that beat the Bulls for this week’s match against the Sharks at Ellis Park on Saturday.

In the forwards Ackermann has chosen to start Julian Redelinghuys at tight head against a largely Springbok front row.

Jaco Kriel also returns to the starting line-up at flank on the side of the scrum.

Ackermann has also made two changes to his starting back line as Faf de Klerk starts at scrumhalf having helped to create the Lions match winning try off the bench last week.

Mark Richards has been named to make his Super Rugby debut at left wing while Lohan Jacobs could also make his Super Rugby debut should he come off the bench.
