Trio back in Lions' den for Sharks tussle

    2017-07-12 07:03

    Cape Town - The Lions have welcomed the availability of three key players ahead of Saturday's Super Rugby clash against the Sharks in Durban.

    Coach Johan Ackermann confirmed on Tuesday that centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg, flyhalf Jaco van der Walt and hooker Robbie Coetzee are available for the clash at Kings Park.

    Springbok centre Janse van Rensburg sustained a knee injury against the Stormers in April, while Van der Walt was sidelined for a couple of months after undergoing foot surgery. The duo returned to action in the Golden Lions' SuperSport Rugby Challenge semi-final last weekend.

    Coetzee is available again after serving a five-week ban for striking an opponent.

    The Lions will name their team on Thursday.
