Settled Lions side to face Bulls

Burger Odendaal and Wandisile Simelane will combine in midfield for the Lions’ clash with the Vodacom Bulls at Loftus on Saturday.

The Lions will head into Saturday’s first semi-final as underdogs, but have named a well-balanced side boasting both youth and experience.

The likes of Willem Alberts, Jannie du Plessis and Jaco Kriel will anchor the pack, while there is a familiar look to the backline, with Simelane donning the No 13 jersey.


Lions – 15 Tiaan Swanepoel, 14 Stean Pienaar, 13 Wandisile Simelane, 12 Burger Odendaal, 11 Courtnall Skosan, 10 Elton Jantjies (c), 9 Andre Warner, 8 Len Massyn, 7 Vincent Tshituka, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Marvin Orie, 4 Willem Alberts, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Jaco Visagie, 1 Sti Sithole.
Subs: 16 Jan-Henning Campher, 17 Ruan Dreyer, 18 Carlu Sadie, 19 Reinhard Nothnagel, 20 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 21 Morne van den Berg, 22 Dan Kriel, 23 Francke Horn, 24 Nathan McBeth, 25 EW Viljoen, 26 Ross Cronje.
