Johannesburg - The Golden Lions have named their side for Saturday's Currie Cup clash against the Blue Bulls at Loftus. 

Ross Cronje, who captained the side last weekend, has been left out of the squad completely with the union confirming that he will be part of the Springbok squad that travels to Australasia on Rugby Championship duty next week. 

The Lions are boosted, however, by the return of centre Lionel Mapoe while there are other Boks in the form of Andries Coetzee, Courtnall Skosan and Marvin Orie. 

Orie, meanwhile, will captain the side. 

Kick-off is at 16:05.
