    Jantjies back in starting XV

    2011-05-25 10:30

    Johannesburg - After making way for Springbok Butch James the previous week, Lions flyhalf Elton Jantjies is back in the starting line-up for Saturday’s Super Rugby encounter with the Highlanders in Dunedin.

    James retained his place in the run-on team where he will take over at inside centre from skipper Doppies la Grange who will be wearing the number 13 jersey this week.

    Lions coach John Mitchell decided to deploy Dylon des Fountain at wing in the place of Lionel Mapoe after his tour was cut short because of a facial injury in last week’s 29-12 loss against the Waratahs.

    Regular wing Michael Killian has arrived with the team after receiving a late call-up, but will start from the bench.
