At this stage it is uncertain how long the Lions will be without Jantjies but they have a bye this week and then face the Crusaders at home in Johannesburg next weekend.

The Lions have also confirmed that Jaco Kriel is on Day 2 of the GRTP programme (Start Graduated Return to Play) after his concussion sustained in the match against the Cheetahs.
