Johannesburg - Lions coach Dick Muir has made only two changes to the side that went down to the Western Force last weekend, for Saturday's Super 14 match against the Blues at Coca-Cola Park.

Lock Franco van der Merwe and tighthead prop Gert Muller are fit after missing last weekend's match because of injury, and loosehead JC Janse van Rensburg has also been passed fit after struggling with an injury during the week, and retains his place.

Van der Merwe comes in for Nico Luus while Muller replaces Ross Geldenhuys.

On the bench Luus takes over from Jacques Lombard.
