    Cape Town - Elton Jantjies will start at flyhalf for the Lions in their Super Rugby clash against the Cheetahs at Ellis Park on Saturday, with Marnitz Boshoff shifting to the bench.

    In other changes to the backline, Lionel Mapoe will start at right wing in the place of Deon van Rensburg, while Andries Coetzee comes in at fullback having returned from injury. He replaces Coenie van Wyk.

    Up front, coach Johan Ackerman opted for consistency, making no changes to the group after last weekend’s 34-17 win over the Rebels.

    Jantjies and Mapoe will both celebrate 50 Super Rugby caps on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).
