    Lions change two for key duel

    2013-08-01 11:06
    Johannesburg - Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has announced his side to face the Kings in the second leg of the Super Rugby promotion/relegation playoff at Ellis Park on Saturday.

    Ackermann made two forced changes to the side which won the first leg 26-19 in Port Elizabeth last Friday.

    In the backline, Deon Helberg replaces the injured Deon van Rensburg on the wing, while Ross Cronje starts at scrumhalf in place of the injured Viaan van der Watt.

    Kick-off is at 17:00 on Saturday.

    The clash kicks off at 17:00, while all 60 000 tickets have been sold out - which sets a new crowd attendance record for Super Rugby.
