Lions lose Skosan for Chiefs super rugby clash




Johannesburg’s Lions will play this weekend’s Super rugby match against the Chiefs without winger Courtnall Skosan.

Skosan’s father is gravely ill so the winger has returned to South Africa to be with his father.

Skosan had been named at fullback for this Friday’s match against the Chiefs in Hamilton so as a result of Skosan leaving the team Andries Coetzee moves to fullback from the bench.

Sylvian Mahuza moves to right wing and Ruan Combrinck moves onto the bench.

Revised Lions team.
