Johannesburg - Xerox Lions coach John Mitchell, has made only one change to the side that beat Western Province at Coca-Cola park last weekend for the vital Absa Currie Cup rugby match against Griquas at the same venue on Saturday.

Lock George Earle has slight concussion and has been replaced by Johan Snyman who was so outstanding against the Platinum Leopards two weeks ago.

Griquas are a single log point behind the Lions and a win for either team is extremely important with five teams bunched within four points on the log.
