Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named his team to play the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday with two changes to the team that beat the Stormers.

Ackermann has opted for consistency where possible but named Warwick Tecklenburg in place of the injured Derick Minnie.

JW Jonker comes into the side after Alwyn Hollenbach was unable to pass a fitness test on Thursday.

As a result of this change, Stefan Watermeyer shifts back to inside centre, with Jonker partnering with him at 13.

Meanwhile, on the replacements bench Willie Britz will provide loose-forward cover, having recovered from his hip flexor injury.

Utility back Courtnall Skosan also comes in on the bench and will look to make his Super Rugby debut.
