    Hollenbach slots in for Lions

    2014-02-20 12:15
    Johannesburg - Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his 23-man team to front the Stormers at Ellis Park on Saturday.

    According to the Lions' official website, Ackermann made one change and one positional change to the starting team that beat the Cheetahs 21-20 in Bloemfontein last weekend.

    In the midfield, Alwyn Hollenbach comes in at inside centre, while Stefan Watermeyer shifts to No 13 due to the hamstring injury sustained by Lionel Mapoe.

    On the bench, utility forward MB Lusaseni is primed to make his Super Rugby debut as he comes into the side. JW Jonker is also a welcome inclusion and will provide cover as a utility back.

    The match will kick off at 19:10.
