    Lions change front row for Jaguares

    2017-04-19 17:14

    Johannesburg - The Lions will field a new-look front row in their Super Rugby clash against the Jaguares in Johannesburg on Friday night as coach Johan Ackermann makes four changes from the side that so impressively beat the Stormers last weekend. 

    Ruan Dreyer, Malcolm Marx and Jacques van Rooyen all started that match but drop to the bench against the Jaguares while Johannes Jonker, Akker van der Merwe and Corne Fourie all earn starts. 

    The other change is injury-enforced, with inside centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg out for the rest of the season and replaced in the starting line-up by Harold Vorster, who scored a try against the Stormers after coming off the bench. 

    Fullback Andries Coetzee, meanwhile, will earn his 50th Super Rugby cap. 

    Kick-off on Friday is at 19:00.
