Hollenbach starts in midfield for Lions
Johannesburg - Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his side to face the Stormers in a Super Rugby clash at Newlands on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).
Ackermann has opted for consistency, making just two forced changes to the Lions match-day 23.
In the midfield, Alwyn Hollenbach will start at inside centre after Lionel Mapoe was unable to pass a late fitness test following a knock to his knee during last weekend’s win over the Waratahs. As a result, Harold Vorster will shift to outside centre for the match.
On the bench, Howard Mnisi will come in for Stokkies Hanekom, who also sustained a minor knee injury in last weekend’s game.
The match will get under way at 17:05 on Saturday.
