    Johannesburg - Elton Jantjies will earn his 100th cap in Super Rugby for the Lions when they host the Brumbies at Ellis Park on Saturday. 

    Jantjies made his Super Rugby debut in 2011 and has nine tries, 112 conversions and 145 penalties under his belt. 

    Coach Swys de Bruin has made numerous changes to his side as he looks to get back to winning ways. 

    The most noticeable selection is that of the highly-rated Aphiwe Dyantyi, who moves from the left wing to outside centre where he will partner the returning Rohan Janse van Rensburg.

    Hacjivah Dayimani makes his way back into the starting line-up at No 8, Madosh Tambwe and Sylvian Mahuza will be the wings while Ross Cronjé, Corné Fourie, Len Massyn and Shaun Reynolds have all entered the fray on the bench.

    Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:15.
