• Lions welcome back trio

    Johan Ackermann has confirmed that Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Jaco van der Walt and Robbie Coetzee are available for Saturday's game against the Sharks in Durban.

    Janse van Rensburg sustained a knee injury against the Stormers in April, while Van der Walt was sidelined for a couple of months after undergoing foot surgery. The backline duo returned to action in the Golden Lions' Provincial Rugby Challenge semi-final on Sunday.

    Coetzee has served out his five-week suspension for striking an opponent.

    'The good news is that Robbie is back from suspension and Jaco and Rohan came through relatively well in their first game back from injury for the Golden Lions,' Ackermann told Rugby365.com on Tuesday.

    'There were no new injuries to the side that played against the Sunwolves [two weeks ago], so everything is going well and everyone is fit.'
