    Cape Town - The Lions and the Bulls face each other not once, but twice this coming weekend.

    The main encounter between the Super Rugby franchises forms part of Super Hero Sunday at the FNB Stadium on January 19 but the sides also clash on Friday at Loftus Versveld with the Lions naming their line-up for that clash on Thursday.

    And the team named includes tighthead prop Carlu Sadie, a recent acquisition from the Stormers. Other familiar names set to run-out for the Johannesburg based side include Shaun Reynolds and Wandisile Simelane.
