Lions make two injury enforced changes for Stormers

Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has made two changes to the side that beat the Waratahs for this week’s Super Rugby match in Cape Town against the Stormers.

Ackermann has been forced into making changes by injury and in the midfield, Alwyn Hollenbach will start at inside centre after Lionel Mapoe was unable to pass a late fitness test following a knock to his knee last week.

As a result of Mapoe’s injury Harold Vorster will shift to outside centre for the match.

On the bench, Howard Mnisi will come in for Stokkies Hanekom, who also sustained a minor knee injury in last weekend’s game.
