Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named Marnitz Boshoff to start in a team with seven changes to face the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Elton Jantjies had an operation on his hand earlier this week so was unavailable which opened the door for Marnitz Boshoff to win a rare  start.

Sylvian Mahuza starts at fullback, replacing Jaco van der Walt who was injured against the Jaguares last weekend.

In other rotational changes Malcolm Marx, Andries Ferreira, Warwick Tecklenburg and Rohan Janse van Rensburg all get a start against the Bulls.

Ashlon Davis has been included on the bench and if he gets a run will make his debut.
