The Lions have named their team to face the Melbourne Rebels with four changes to the team that lost to the Stormers last weekend.

The four injuries are all injury enforced changes to the starting line up that lost 27-17 at Newlands last Saturday.

Michael Bondesio starts at Scrumhalf in place of Tian Meyer while Waylon Murray starts at outside centre in place of Lionel Mapoe who moves to right wing in place of Deon van Rensburg.

Anthonie Volmink comes into the starting line up on the left wing.

Andries Coetzee has been ruled out of Super Rugby this season so James Kamana starts at Fullback in his place.
