The Lions have named their team to play the Melbourne Rebels at Ellis Park on Friday with Franco van der Merwe returning to the starting line up.
Lions head coach has aimed for consistency by naming the same front row and loose forward trio that faced the Bulls before the June Test break.
The only change in the forwards sees Springbok lock Franco van der Merwe return to action, having fully recovered from his ankle injury.
Meanwhile, in the backline, Anthony Volmink will start at left wing, while Deon van Rensburg covers the right wing berth.
