• Rohan set to return for Lions

    Rohan Janse van Rensburg has been named on the bench for the Lions' clash against the Sharks in Durban on Saturday.

    The Bok centre made his return from a serious knee injury in a Provincial Rugby Challenge match last weekend, and is now set to make his Super Rugby comeback.

    For this final regular-season game, the Lions have selected their strongest available squad in a match that could possibly enable them to finish top of the overall log should the Crusaders suffer a loss to the Hurricanes earlier on Saturday.

    As a result, Lions coach Johan Ackermann has retained an unchanged starting lineup as they aim to secure a 12th successive win.

    Lions – 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Ruan Combrinck, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Courtnall Skosan, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronjé, 8 Ruan Ackermann, 7 Kwagga Smith, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Jacques van Rooyen.
    Subs: 16 Akker van der Merwe, 17 Corné Fourie, 18 Johannes Jonker, 19 Lourens Erasmus, 20 Cyle Brink, 21 Faf de Klerk, 22 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, 23 Sylvian Mahuza.
