Golden Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named his Currie Cup team to play Western Province at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday.

Ackermann has promoted Willie Britz and Warwick Tecklenburg into the forwards starting pack to join Derick Minnie in the loose trio.

Minnie takes over the Lions Currie Cup captaincy while Warren Whiteley has been called up by the Springboks.

In the backline Ackermann has resisted change and retained the line up that beat Eastern Province Kings 60-19 at Ellis Park last Saturday.

Lions

Andries Coetzee, Lionel Mapoe, Stokkies Hanekom, Harold Vorster, Ruan Combrinck, Jaco van der Walt, Ross Cronje, Willie Britz, Warwick Tecklenburg, Derick Minnie (captain), Franco Mostert, MB Lusaseni, Ruan Dreyer, Robbie Coetzee, Schalk van der Merwe.

Replacements: Armand van der Merwe, Jacques van Rooyen, Martin Muller, Jaco Kriel, Guy Cronje, Kwagga Smith, Howard Mnisi.
