Lions receive Bok boost

Lions prop Julian Redelinghuys will be available for selection ahead of Saturday's clash with the Sharks in Durban.

Redelinghuys missed the Lions' 22-8 loss to the Hurricanes in their opening Vodacom Super Rugby match at the weekend, but looks set to make his return against the Sharks.

The Lions have also confirmed that hooker Robbie Coetzee, who toured with the Boks last year, has recovered from a neck injury and has returned to full training.

There were no new injuries to speak of, although lock MB Lusaseni is still recovering from a knee injury, and remains a couple weeks away from full fitness.
