Lions coach Johan Ackermann has made several changes to his Super Rugby team to play in the Juskei derby battle against the Bulls at Ellis Park on Saturday.

In the forwards, Ackermann has made wholesale changes to the front row that lost 29-19 to the Western Force in Perth last week.

Schalk van der Merwe, Robbie Coetzee and Julian Redelinghuys will all start in the front row this week.

Meanwhile, in the backline, Chrysander Botha will start at left wing, while Stokkies Hanekom comes in at outside centre.

Courtnall Skosan will fill the right wing berth, having recovered from injury.
