Golden Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has been forced to make several changes to his Currie Cup side that will face the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Captain Warren Whiteley has been drafted into the Springbok squad and will hence be replaced by Willie Britz, who moves up from the bench. Martin Muller will provide cover off the replacements bench.

Unfortunately Robbie Coetzee has also been withdrawn from tomorrow’s match after suffering from a neck spasm. He will be replaced by Willie Wepener on the bench.

Lionel Mapoe will captain the side.
