Johannesburg - Golden Lions coach Swys de Bruin has named his team for Friday’s Currie Cup clash against the Sharks in Durban (19:15 kick-off).

De Bruin made three changes to the side that beat the Blue Bulls 36-33 at Ellis Park on September 16.

Up front, Rhyno Herbst gets a start at lock in place of Andries Ferreira, while Fabian Booysen starts at No 8 in place of Ryan Kankowski who was released for club duties in Japan.

In the backline, Aphiwe Dyantyi gets a run at left wing, replacing Anthony Volmink.

De Bruin knows the clash against the log-leading Sharks will be a tough one.

“They don’t have a vast number of Springboks or Japan-based players out and will be playing at home in conditions they know well. I would’ve thought that the likes of players like Thomas du Toit and Curwin Bosch would also have been drafted into the Springbok set-up with sterling performances this season. We are looking forward to a tough encounter,” the Lions mentor said.

The Lions are currently fourth on the Currie Cup standings, having won four of their nine games.
