Johannesburg - With their campaign back on track, the Pumas made a single change to the run-on side for their Currie Cup match against the Golden Lions in Nelspruit on Friday.

Lock Giant Mtyanda is back in the starting XV after his stint on the bench in their narrow 15-13 victory over the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth last weekend.

Mtyanda will replace Marius Coetzer at No 5 lock where he will partner with Rudi Mathee in the second row, while Jannie Stander will take his place on the bench.

In their second-round fixture, the Lions claimed a 44-27 victory over the Pumas in Johannesburg where ill-discipline cost the visitors with two penalty tries awarded against them.
