Coach Ivan van Rooyen has made five changes the Golden Lions starting lineup for Saturday’s must-win game against Griquas in Kimberley.
An injury to Warren Whiteley will put the performance of Springbok hopeful Cyle Brink against the Highlanders in the spotlight, writes JOHN GOLIATH.
Lions captain Warren Whiteley’s knee injury is not as serious as originally feared and will only keep him out of action for the next few weeks.
Aphiwe Dyantyi will start at outside centre when the Lions face the Sharks in Johannesburg on Friday.
Cyle Brink, Dylan Smith and Robbie Coetzee have been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Cyle Brink will be leaving the Bok camp after sustaining a knee injury in training, writes CRAIG LEWIS in Durban.
Aphiwe Dyantyi and Cyle Brink have been included in the Lions’ 25-man squad that will travel to Christchurch for the Super Rugby final against the Crusaders.
Lions flank Cyle Brink is expected to play in their Super Rugby semi-final against the Waratahs at Ellis Park on Saturday.
