The Lions have made one injury enforced change to the team that will play the Lions in a Super Rugby match at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

Second rower Franco van der Merwe will miss the Lions last Super rugby match of the year and he is replaced by Ruan Botha.

The Lions are gauranteed to finish in last place in the South African conference so they are out of contention for the play offs.

The Bulls on the other hand are still chasing a place in the Super Rugby play offs and are curently fifth in the overall standings.

Due to how close the Bulls rivals are in the standings the Bulls will most likely need a bonus point victory to progress to the play offs.
