Johannesburg - Golden Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named his 22-man side to take on Griquas in a Currie Cup match in Kimberley on Saturday afternoon.

In the forwards, prop Jacques van Rooyen and flank Warwick Tecklenburg will both start the match after moving up from the bench.

Meanwhile, in the backline, Ross Cronje will start at scrumhalf and Howard Mnisi will come in at inside centre.

However, the big news is the return of flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff to the bench. Boshoff was initially ruled out for the season with a broken arm, but has recovered sufficiently to take his spot on the bench.

Saturday’s match will kick-off at 15:00.
