Lions head coach Johann Ackermann has named his team to play the Stormers at Newlands in Cape Town and included Lionel Mapoe.

Mapoe has recovered from a hand injury and returns to the starting line up for this weekend.

Ackemann has also included prop Ruan Dreyer for his 50th Super Rugby game.

Dreyer (26) made his debut for the Lions in 2012.

Mapoe returns after being sidelined with a hand injury and takes the place of Harold Vorster, who moves to the bench in the place of Jacques Nel.

Johannes Jonker makes his return to the bench after he suffered a knock to the head against the Reds and Sylvian Mahuza is back to warm the bench.
