Golden Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named his 22-man match day Currie Cup squad to play the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
Ackermann has made a number of changes to the Golden Lions backline after last week's loss to Western Province at Newlands in Cape Town.
Ruan Combrinck will start at his preferred position of fullback, Lionel Mapoe will run out at right wing and Stokkies Hanekom reverts to the outside centre berth for this match.
Alwyn Hollenbach returns to action and will start at inside centre, while Andries Coetzee will fill the flyhalf slot.
In the forwards, the Xerox Golden Lions welcome back captain Warren Whiteley at eighthman.
Jaco Kriel will also start this match alongside Whiteley in the loose trio.
In the front row, Armand van der Merwe will make a start at hooker.
