Marnitz Boshoff will start at flyhalf for the Golden Lions against the Blue Bulls at Loftus, with Elton Jantjies on the bench.

Chrysander Botha takes the No 15 jersey from Boshoff, who wore it against the Sharks.

Lions coach Johan Ackermann has given new signing Willie Wepener a chance to make an immediate impact against his former employers, with the hooker having parted ways with the Bulls earlier in the month after the Pretoria outfit signed Bandise Maku (Kings) and Callie Visagie (Lions).

Franco van der Merwe returns from Springbok duty to slot into the second row in the only other change.

Golden Lions – 15 Chrysander Botha, 14 Deon Helberg, 13 Robert De Bruyn, 12 Dylan Des Fountain, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Guy Cronjé, 8 Willie Britz, 7 Derick Minnie (c), 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Chris van Zyl, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Jacques van Rooyen.
Subs: 16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 CJ van der Linde, 18 Lambert Groenewald, 19 Warwick Tecklenburg, 20 Tiaan Meyer, 21 Elton Jantjies, 22 Lionel Cronjé.
